Widener’s Own Earth Day Coffee Brew

April 18, 2013

WU Brew, a Widener-branded coffee, will be introduced at a coffee tasting on Earth Day, April 22. Why Earth Day? Because the coffee is earth friendly, grown without herbicides or pesticides and under trees, a shade-grown method that preserves forests.  It’s a project that brings together students, faculty, and alumni involvement.  If you are on campus, please stop by our table in University Center from noon – 2 p.m. Monday.  If not, please visit the WU Brew page for more information and the opportunity to buy a bag online.

Dr. Stephen Madigosky, chair of Widener’s environmental science department, and students conducted research at Las Lajas Farms in Costa Rica where WU Brew coffee beans are grown organically and beneath shade trees. Here a student tastes a coffee bean.
