Have you heard of Street Bean Coffee? Well, Pacific Northwesters, prepare yourself for this amazing new cold brew hitting our shelves this month. Based in Auburn and founded by the same team who created Schilling Cider, this brand aims to promote environmental sustainability while also giving back to the local community.
Street Bean Coffee started as an experiment to see if they could make a great tasting, ethically sourced, and socially conscious coffee brand. They felt the best way to do this was to partner with an existing local nonprofit that has had a proven track record, which lead them to Street Bean Roasters. Together they decided to collaborate on the making of this new cold brew.
They use single origin coffee beans (from an all-female owned coop in Brazil) and then they brew the delicious coffee in the same tanks that Schilling Cider uses for their cider fermentation. The best part is that for every can of Street Bean Coffee sold, the local company donates its proceeds to Street Bean Roasters which provides street-involved young adults the opportunity to reclaim their lives through job training, housing, and more.
All ingredients in the cans of Street Bean Coffee are sustainably sourced and are chosen for their unique flavor profile. They currently have three flavors of coffee: cold brew, latte, and mocha:
There are a few ways to support Street Bean! You could pick up some cans of cold brew at your neighborhood Bartell’s or visit one of their local shops! If you’d like to donate directly, visit their website.
