'Local Prem Coffee': CP Students visit their supplier

A group of our Grade 11 and Grade 12 Career-related Programme students went to visit their coffee supplier, Thai High, last week.  Local Prem Coffee is a student led service learning organisation. It was set up last year and continues to grow, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our students.Our supplier, Thai High, is committed to sustained practices with their farmers. They educate them on how to grow and select the best coffee beans and pay them an above average price for their beans. Our students have a better understanding of fair trade thanks to this working relationship.
The Local Prem Coffee team decided to buy 3 coffee varieties from Thai High; Sweet Cherry, Brown Ale Peaberry and Wild Honey. They buy in bulk and redistribute into 200g paper bags, where they have designed their own logo and labels. New this year is the introduction of refillable  glass jars. Our students are always looking at ways of being more sustainable.
In addition, the students have also learnt how to make cold brew coffee drinks. They currently offer Thai Style and Fire Cracker but are working on adding a few more choices. Local Prem Coffee sell their products at the community market as well as all major school events. They will be selling at the Prem Fall Classic Football Tournament this Friday so please come and support them.
