PBS Says, Show Me the Coffee!

T4056_largeA few years ago I came across a list of things that made Boston a great place to live.  Not far down on it was our public television station WGBH.  So it came as no surprise to me when I read that public television was partnering with Green Mountain Coffee to sell its own coffee, PBS Blend.  WGBH makes Boston a great place to live and good coffee just makes life great.  It was only natural to bring the two together.

PBS Blend will support public television's programming and educational services.  But that's just the beginning.  It will preserve the rain forests, end social injustice, cure cancer, reverse global warming and save the whales.  All that and PBS Blend tastes good too.

At least that's what the press release said.

"Sweetly balanced and smooth, with full flavor and a rich finish, PBS Blend is grown in the lush, tropical rain forests surrounding the El Triunfo Biosphere in Mexico. PBS Blend carries the Fair Trade Certified label, which guarantees farmers a fair price for their coffee harvest and enables them to reinvest in their communities. In addition, PBS Blend is environmentally-friendly. A certified organic coffee, its beans were grown using agricultural practices that preserve biodiversity and vital habitats for migratory birds and other wildlife."

Save Elmo.  Save the world.

PBS Blend is available at the Green Mountain web site.  You can choose between 10-ounce packages of or single-serve packets to be used with Green Mountain’s Keurig Single-Cup brewers.
