Organic Black Beans, 1lb bag

These Organic Black Beans are grown in the Northeast, in a crop rotation with grains. Crop rotation is one of the oldest and most effective strategies on the farm to maintain healthy plants and soils. It's the practice of growing small plots of different crops on the farm and rotating them from year to year in a planned sequence. Crop rotations limit pests and have economic as well as ecologic value. Grains and beans work magically together. Crop rotations utilize nature's most effective strategy for resilience, diversity! For farmers, rotations act like insurance, allowing for diverse income potential and weathering the unexpected. This tasty classic is hard to beat. Perfect with rice or rice substitutes such as farro, barley or couscous. 4 Pack contains four 1lb bags.

Produced by Maine Grains

Maine Grains is located in the rural Maine town of Skowhegan, an area that bustled when its paper, wool, and shoe factories were humming. As with grain, these industries left in search of efficiency and large scale, and the town and its farms were left behind. Today, Maine Grains isn't just a new business, it's an engine of transformation. By re-localizing grain production and milling they support the health and livelihood of the farmers and communities they serve. Maine Grains is creating jobs, improving land use, and providing healthy food for all while serving as a successful model for thriving local economies. Their traditional stone milling process ensures nutrient-packed products that are full of flavor and perfect for natural fermentation baking and cooking. Equal Exchange appreciates the multi-faceted commitment demonstrated by Maine Grains to support local independent farmers and the community, and to restore and sustain the local regional agricultural economy.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
