193. Just when things looked like they couldn’t get any better…

…the 5 de junio cooperative in Nicaragua got even more good news.  Peregrine Espresso, the quality-obsessed Washington, DC, coffeehouse started by Counter Culture émigré Ryan Jensen, announced that it will donate $0.25 per cup and $1 per bag of all sales of its 5 de junio coffees — the pulp-natural espresso and single-variety maragoype microlots we have profiled here in recent weeks — to the Fabretto Foundation, a local NGO that promotes the social and economic development of the communities where 5 de junio’s members live.

As luck would have it, after three weeks of travel between Colombia, Ecuador and Nicaragua, I find myself today in DC.  I look forward to visiting Peregrine later today to stock up on some fantastic coffee (and support my friends from the Fabretto Foundation and 5 de junio).
