Because Clean Water Makes Great Coffee…
Anyone can make an OK cup of coffee, but you have to have the right combination of things to make a great cup of coffee. The right grind and ratio are important, but without clean water and high quality beans, your end result will just be OK. At JRA, not only do we work to make sure the James is clean, but we also try to support local businesses as often as we can. If you aren’t familiar with Blanchard’s, they are an independent, family-owned coffee roastery in Richmond. They are passionate about great coffee and their goal is to provide their customers with the best coffee available. Together we have come up with James River Blend; a bold, full-bodied and earthy blend that is the perfect coffee to compliment those cool, crisp mornings on the Mighty James.
The cost of James River Blend is $11 for a 12oz bag. Most importantly, a portion of the proceeds from every purchase will benefit JRA to help support our mission to protect America’s Founding River. You can purchase the James River Blend here, or Blanchard’s www.blanchardscoffee.com. In the Richmond area you can also find the new James River Blend at Farm to Family, Local Roots, Fall Line Farms or online at Kojava.com or Blanchard’s Etsy store.
