Equal Exchange Coffee and Chocolate—The two companies from which we have purchased our coffee and chocolate–Lutheran World Relief and Equal Exchange have gone their separate ways. Our primary purpose was to support LWR, we will continue to order from them but it will mean no flavored coffees and no chocolate – at least not this year. The good news is that the farmers which LWR supports will now receive 80¢ back per pound (a significant increase). There will be mild roast, dark roast and decaf both regular grind and whole bean. Packages are 12 ounces and the cost will be approximately $7.15 for regular and 7.85 for decaf. Orders will be taken December 3rd with delivery either the 10th or 17th.
