Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company – H2O Initiative

Recently during a visit to the Mid-Atlantic some of our team had the pleasure of visiting the Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company in Crofton, Maryland, and we have to let you all know that we love what these guys are doing.

Whether it’s hanging around the roastery drinking espressos, sponsoring conservation efforts, or hosting the local Green Drinks group, you’re bound to find the team at the Chesapeake Roasting Company engaged in the two things they love most, coffee and community.

The Chesapeake Bay Coffee Roasting Company is an eco-friendly coffee roastery that is committed to giving-back to their local community, and they do this in several ways. One is by the creation of their H2O Initiative which is the company’s community outreach program, geared at advocating their give-back message and supporting organizations and community groups making a difference in the health and well being of the Chesapeake Bay. In fact, a portion of every dollar the company makes goes to preserving some aspect of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, one of the areas leading natural resources and treasures.

Another way the company gives back is buy it’s commitment to being green. While touring their facilities we had the privilege of learning about the companies newest addition to the team, a state of the art roaster. The Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company boasts one of the world’s most efficient and eco-friendly coffee roasters, consuming nearly 20 percent less energy and reducing emissions by almost 80 percent when compared to traditional drum roasters. The company is also taking a green approach to its packaging using sustainable canisters which can be recycled or reused after use.

Great guys, with a great vision and love for coffee and their community, we can’t get enough of this stuff. Thanks for the inspiration.
