Member Owners will receive 10% off each bag!

This month we have the pleasure of offering 12oz bags of Peritus Coffee Roasters .

“Peritus Coffee Roasters was founded in Fort Collins from a deep-rooted love of home roasting and a lifetime of conscious sourcing. After nearly a decade of home-roasting, we knew we had to share our love of craft coffee with others to bring you a delightful cup of coffee each and every day.

We love to celebrate the nuances of each region we source from, celebrate the methods used for farming and processing there, and, even more, thank the farmers who grew the beautiful beans through proper and fair sourcing methods and, of course, roasting the beans to highlight the beautiful features they bring to the table.

What does “peritus” mean? In Latin, it  is defined as skillful and practicedthe skill and practice to bring you an excellent cup goes through many hands from the farmer, to the processor, distributor, roaster and coffee preparerwe celebrate all those clever hands!”

Try their “Rwanda Karongi Gitesi”, “Sumatra Toba Batak Perry” or “Espresso Blend” in store for just $14.00 for a 12oz or $12.49 with Member Owner’s 10% savings!

For the Love of All That Is ‘Whole–y’: Food

Jordans_Blog_Pictures

Next Wednesday the 23rd signifies the Autumnal Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere, as we harvest and celebrate the fruits (veggies and whole grains) of our labor.

With a healthy heaping of satire and a (whole) grain of salt, this week I ponder: What is the difference between Whole Foods and ‘whole–y’ foods?

To this I respond: How much of your (soul’s) paycheck is spent after shopping!

At the Fort Collins Food Co–op, your favorite, friendly, natural grocery store, since 1972, we do our best to emphasize the local, hometown heroes who provide wholesome foods, liquid life elixirs, and other healing products we sell (as distinguished by the various blue ‘L’/product cards in bulk and produce). A fun Food Co-op fact: all this “local business” consists of more than 20% of our overall sales and upwards of 40% of what we as a Food Co–op purchase directly from the farmer/vendor.

When you choose to purchase Wisdom’s eggs and/or poultry, you are supporting a local family–owned and operated farm from Huxton, CO where chickens live in a “stress-free environment with full access to water that comes directly from our deep well [and are] given full access to the fresh air and sunshine of the great outdoors.”

When you select produce from Native Hill Farm, located in Laporte, you are supporting not only this fantastic farm that continues to offer the highest quality veggies, but you are also investing in the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, which allows increased accessibility and affordability for individuals/families to obtain nutritious food.

When you decide to try Turtle Mountain kombucha/tea/kimchi, you are literally supporting your life with these probiotic products (from its Greek origins, bios meaning life and pro– meaning in support of). What’s more, you are supporting a woman–owned, Fort Collins startup that recycles beer bottles for all of its kombucha creations. Backing bacteria has never been more beneficial.

We, the foodies of the Food Co–op, exist as individuals with a mind of our own, choosing to share the profits and the losses in this cooperative investment in the heartfelt whole.

For the love of all that is ‘whole–y’, the next time you are fixin’ to go to Whole Foods, consider supporting our community’s organically homegrown shop and see for yourself what’s in store with our envisioned relocation (r)evolution!
