Decaf SWP Organic Mexican City Roast, Whole Bean Coffee, 5-Pound Bag

Decaf SWP Organic Mexican City Roast, Whole Bean Coffee, 5-Pound Bag

Unlike most of our decaf coffees, these beans are decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process. The Swiss Water Process is a 100% natural alternative to the methylene chloride process that has become the industry standard. We roast this variety to a full City Roast to bring out the fullness of the body. Our Mexican features a moderate body and solid acidity with nutty undertones. There is only one SWP facility in the world, located in Vancouver, Canada. Why is it called “Swiss” and not “Canadian?” Well, because the process was originally developed in Switzerland in the 1930s.

Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution

Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution

A global movement to take back our food is growing. The future of farming is in our hands—and in our cities.This book examines alternative food systems in cities around the globe that are shortening their food chains, growing food within their city limits, and taking their "food security" into their own hands. The author, an award-winning food journalist, sought out leaders in the urban-agriculture movement and visited cities successfully dealing with "food deserts." What she found was not just a niche concern of activists but a global movement that cuts across the private and public spheres, economic classes, and cultures. She describes a global movement happening from London and Paris to Vancouver and New York to establish alternatives to the monolithic globally integrated supermarket model. A cadre of forward-looking, innovative people has created growing spaces in cities: on rooftops, backyards, vacant lots, along roadways, and even in "vertical farms." Whether it’s a community public orchard supplying the needs of local residents or an urban farm that has reclaimed a derelict inner city lot to grow and sell premium market veggies to restaurant chefs, the urban food revolution is clearly underway and working.This book is an exciting, fascinating chronicle of a game-changing movement, a rebellion against the industrial food behemoth, and a reclaiming of communities to grow, distribute, and eat locally.
