First Avenue Coffee is a coffee house with a clear agenda: spotlight small-lot, shade-grown, organic coffee – and save the world.
Or, at least try to.
“Every coffee we buy is small-lot, hand-picked, hand-sorted and of the highest quality,” said proprietor Deb Di Bernardo. “All are shade-grown, so the ecosystem stays intact. All are certified organic.”
They’re also more expensive. But these kinds of growing practices help safeguard their long-term sustainability.
