When you buy coffee beans and merchandise online HERE, CCC receives $5 a bag to support its mission. You'll also be supporting a local business, JustLove Coffee, which is a local roaster in town over at 149 MTCS Drive, just off Northfield and Memorial Blvd. You can also go by the store, (open till 6:00 PM0 and buy there. Just tell them you're participating in the Central Christian Church Coffee Store and you won't have to pay shipping!
I stopped by there and had a cup of coffee, ("How much for a cup of Ethiopian?" "Whatever you want to pay." ) and bought a bag of beans myself. The coffee was great and I look forward to supporting our church and Rob Webb's local business. So click on the link above, or go to http://justlovecoffee.com/ccc to start buying! You can also buy T-Shirts, Hoodies, and Coffee Mugs as well as a wide variety of roasted on the premises beans and green coffee beans, if you want to "roast at home."
Rob Webb knows coffee. When Rob was two years old, his father started Webb’s Coffee Service, which blossomed into a full-blown refreshment service supplying businesses in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas, and is now run by Rob.
Rob Webb knows the adoption process. In the summer of 2008, Rob and his wife Emily were called to adopt from Ethiopia. After much prayer and discussion with their first two children they started their adoption journey in August 2008. During the flurry of paperwork and preparation, Rob & Emily read books not only on adoption in general, but specifically on Ethiopia. Learning that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee caught Rob’s attention, and after reading about the living conditions and wages of the average coffee farmer, he was compelled to take action. What developed through his reading and his trip to Ethiopia to unite with his daughters was a realization that he could combine his expertise and longstanding desire to roast his own coffees with his desire to help others. Just Love Coffee Roasters was born! Roasting Fair Trade Specialty coffees, Just Love uses proceeds to help an Ethiopian orphanage and families adopting not just from Ethiopia, but from anywhere in the world.
Just Love Coffee Roasters takes a small batch artisan approach to all of our specialty Fair Trade coffees. This means no automation & no computers are used during our roast process. Every batch is roasted to perfection using smell, sight, sound, touch and taste. Our mission is to bring out the unique qualities that are inherent in each coffee bean. Owner Rob Webb is passionate about creating outstanding artisan coffees. See the Murfreesboro Post article for more information.
My favorite so far is the Total Eclipse Espresso Roast :
