Community tours and perks offered at Crofton coffeehouse

June 15, 2012 by  

Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company in Crofton is hosting an open house every first Wednesday of the month, from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm, at 2100 Concord Blvd., Suite J, so locals can learn more about its coffee, its role in the community, and so that CBRC can grasp what residents expect from local businesses.

Guests will also have the chance to test various blends of coffee, go on a tour of the roasting facility, and will be able to replenish their CBRC coffee cans for $10.

CBRC, part of Orvis Company, Inc., donated $2,500 to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation during the grand opening ceremony of an Orvis store in Woodbridge, Virginia on Friday, June 1.

The contribution marked CBRC’s continuing commitment to sustain the health and renewal of the Chesapeake Bay, specifically to maintain the oyster populace in the bay.

The printing of the hefty check, CBRC labels on coffee containers, bags, and machinery was likely commissioned out to Crofton printing companies, as Crofton is where the headquarters of the coffee company is based.

According to the CBRC website, the coffee company was founded in January 2002 with the concept of not only creating premium coffees but also connecting to ecological issues affecting the well-being of the Chesapeake Bay, the region’s treasure.

Protecting the bay is also the purpose behind the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, sequestered on the outskirts of Bay Ridge, with the fundamental goal being to have pure water with strong oxygen levels clear of toxic impurities. For further information on this, visit the CBF’s website.
