Spill the Beans

Freshly Roasted Coffee has arrived!!! We've got a Central American Theme going with several different roasts. Guatamalan, Nicaraguan and Mexican Altura. If that doesn't spark any interest there is Espresso and a Paupa New Guinea Roast as well.

Stop in at Revolution Cycle and Ski or Fitzharris Cycle and Sport to pick up one or many lbs. of freshly roasted Organic Fair Trade Coffee. Also Thank them for participating in this project and supporting the trails!!

I heard we will be building up a bunch of these with the proceeds to leave at the trail head of Plum Creek this summer so we can keep the tall grass in check this year!
