Happy St. Patrick’s day! Sunflower Espresso and friends have some fun things for you to check out.
Through this weekend, Third Place Brewing is slinging up some Irish Coffees using PT’s Coffee Roasting Co.’s own Flying Monkey espresso blend (supplied by yours truly). This drink is a delicious blend of coffee, Jameson Irish whisky, brown sugar, and heavy whipping cream that’s been slightly whipped. We even tested it out for ourselves!
On Saturday, check out the Delano St. Patrick’s day parade and stop in to say “hi”! We’ll be parked on Sycamore, north of the Delano Clock Tower and south of the Advanced Learning Library from 10 am to 2 pm. We hope to see you there!
Did you know that every year the average American family throws away around 500 pounds of food scraps that could be composted? Now imagine all the coffee and espresso grounds a coffee bus can produce!
That’s why we at Sunflower Espresso have partnered up with Nudge Compost. Their business model is simple. They provide us with several buckets (with liners and lids) where we put our food scraps and other compostable materials, and then they come by once a week to pick up and drop off clean buckets. That waste then gets turned into compost. The compost then goes back to costumers or gets donated to community gardens and schools.
Nudge Compost hopes to help strengthen the long-term soil health of our city, increase food security through better efficiency within the food system, and to ultimately decrease food waste. Their environmental awareness and desire to provide a service that improves our community makes them terrific business partners!
If you’re also interested in partnering up with Nudge Compost, check out their website, and sign-up! They work with both commercial businesses AND private residences.
