What has a mild nuttiness, rich cocoa tones, a “deeply satisfying” body and is made with the “cleanest water”?
Fracktivist Blend coffee, of course.
Gimme! Coffee, an Ithaca-based coffee maker and chain of espresso shops, is selling the South American blend of coffee beans for $15 for a 12-ounce bag. Of that, $2 will be donated to “the anti-fracking movement in the region.”
“Did you know that every cup of brewed coffee is 98% water? Hydraulic fracturing (also known as “fracking”) is a controversial drilling method that poses a threat to water supply right in our backyard.”
The coffee company also has shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn to go along with two in Ithaca and one in nearby Trumansburg. The Fracktivist Blend also popped up in Uncommon Grounds shops in Albany and Saratoga this week.
