A group of students from Vermont
recently returned from Costa
Rica, visiting as part of a citizen science
team who worked with six coffee farmers there, trying to form a cooperative to
sell organic coffee.
To help the caffeine-addicted amongst us,
Burlington resident Christine Graham and South Burlington resident Cathy Frank created www.coffeestopsvermont.com
– a website to help you find the perfect cup of joe, whether you’re in
Readsboro or Burlington.
Our series of summer programs continues with a look at how the fish are biting. Anglers and wildlife officials are working to control damaging invasive species that affect our fish population – and they’re experimenting with ways to improve fish habitat.
VPR’s Jane Lindholm visited
the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters complex recently while they were conducting what’s called a
"calibration cupping." The idea is to get buyers and producers on
the same page to understand what the company is looking for in its beans.
