Real Local RVA’s March Meeting
March 5 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
When you drink that warm cup of coffee each morning do you ever take the time to think about where it came from? About the coffee bush growing on the other side of the world? About the farmer who hand picked the bean and what his/her working condition was like? Did you know the bean is actually a seed?
The coffee you enjoy each day has taken a long journey to arrive in your cup. Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. believes every coffee has a story to tell that includes the land where it was grown, the hands that nurtured it from seed to harvest, the craftsmen who roasted it, and the communities it supported along the way.
Join us to hear more from David Blanchard founder of Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. David founded Blanchard’s in January 2005 while working in the financial industry. Passionate about great coffee, David saw a need for more of it in Richmond. Blanchard’s now has wholesale clients and retail customers throughout the United States.
Blanchard’s honors each coffee’s story with a commitment to sustainability in the global coffee community through responsible sourcing, stewardship, and thoughtful roasting.
We look forward to tasting some of Blanchard’s thoughtfully sourced coffee paired with delicious cinnamon rolls from C&C’s Cinnamon Rolls. Please join us as we hear from an exciting local company with deep ties in the Richmond community.
Real Local RVA monthly meetings are open any community members interested in supporting the local food movement.
