Business Description: 
Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. is committed to Coffee with Integrity. This means we only use the very best Organic, Fair Trade, Naturally Farmed and Rainforest Alliance coffee beans, produced with respect for the environment and the farmers. We roast all our coffee in small batches to maintain the character of the beans and have them bagged and ready for you to enjoy in a few days -- not weeks or months. We focus on having as little environmental impact as possible, so we use compostable service items and recycle up to 95% of waste. Also, as part our commitment to our communities, we donate a portion of our profits to local nonprofit and community outreach programs.

Waste Reuse
Description of Action: 
-We reduce, reuse, and recycle our waste in that order. We are constantly thinking of ways in which we can give new life to "waste" that would otherwise end up in a landfill. We have made chairs, cosmetic bags, purses, art pieces, hot cup sleeves, and pillows with the simple burlap bags we receive the coffee in. We reuse cardboard boxes for shipping and transporting merchandise before recycling them. We recycle all plastic and paper products. Our used coffee grinds get composted onto our on-site garden.

Community
Support Community Initiatives
Description of Action: 
-We are committed to our local communities. We source as much local food as possible- supporting local farmers and businesses. This not only stimulates the local economy, but greatly reduces transportation emissions. -We work with local organizations to improve our immediate environment. Our Mountainkeeper Blend for example, was created for the Catskill's Mountkeeper Mission "...to be the strongest and most effective possible advocate for the Catskill region by promoting sustainable growth and protecting the natural resources essential to healthy communities." -We supply local artisans with materials for various crafts. In the past we have worked with a local soap-maker to produce a coffee based soap. Artisans who source local materials greatly reduce the demand for fossil fuels.
