Earth Day is upon us! Here's our loose interpretation of going green.
This makes us feel even better about our daily brew: By the end of 2011, Caribou
's beans will be 100% Rainforest Alliance certified, making it the first major coffee retailer in the U.S. to commit to offering only sustainable coffee. They've introduced new flavors: Lacuna and Lakeshore Blend
. If you purchase two pounds of these blends, you'll get a free reusable coffee sleeve.
