Hand Roasted Artisan Coffees for a Cause
Astral Blends from Weavers Coffee Support Breast Cancer Screening & Treatment
Astral Blend and Decaf Astral Blend are the Spring Seasonal Roasts offered by Weaver’s Coffee & Tea and have been described as being: Sweet, Smooth and Sassy. Like the gorgeous cherry blossom, Astral Blend comes to us in the Spring and stays with us through Valentine’s Day, Easter and Mother’s Day. But these Fair Trade Certified and Certified Organic hand-roasted artisan blends are more than just coffee. Weaver's Coffee donates 5% of the sales of Astral Blend to supporting breast cancer research funding for local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education, breast cancer screening and treatment.
Headquartered in San Rafael, CA, Weaver's Coffee & Tea bears the name of Master Roaster & President John Weaver, who began roasting coffee in 1980 where he apprenticed under two legendary coffee experts, Alfred Peet and Sal Bonavita. Weaver is recognized as one of the most accomplished coffee roasters and tasting experts in the world. He trained side by side with Alfred Peet for four years and then went on to be the Master Roaster at Peet’s Coffee for over two decades. In 2007, Weaver started his own company with friends. Now one of the world’s greatest living coffee roasters, he crafts the Astral Blends on a 45 Kilo Probat Roaster.
