We’re excited to welcome Booch Organic Kombucha to the family of products that we carry at the Green Bean. To help get the word on this great new product we’re having the Booch team in for a tasting at our University location on Thursday, March 31 from 11a –2p.
You may be wondering what exactly Kombucha is? This is what Booch has to say:
Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage produced by a symbiotic blend of beneficial yeast and bacteria added to black, green, or white tea. It has been used traditionally in diets for thousands of years, and is known to repopulate the beneficial bacteria in your gut; promote digestion of food, and help your immune system fight all kinds of illnesses. Kombucha originated in China over 2,000 years ago, and was once even thought to be a tonic for immortality.
Come and learn about and taste Booch Organic Kombucha. See you there!
MOJ is providing is with fantastic cold pressed ginger shots. You can order straight shots of ginger or add them to teas. Our Lemon Lift tea with a Ginger shot is personal favourite.
Pulp and Press Juice Co. is providing us with a range of high quality, organic cold pressed juices.
From their website:
Our raw, 100% organic juices are created using an industrial grade, hydraulic cold press juicer. Praised as the most efficient type of juicer on the market, a cold press does not introduce any heat or oxygen, producing the purest, most nutrient dense juice that you can get your hands on.
There are 3-4 pounds of fresh, organic produce in every bottle. Pulp and Press delivers a delicious and 100% nutritious juice every time.
Stop by either location to check out our newest addition; cold-pressed juice!
The Green Bean Cafe is excited to announce our fourth annual Community Christmas Dinner! We know that every year in our neighbourhood hundreds of students stick around the university campus for the holidays. In addition, there are many families and individuals around us looking for new ways to celebrate the Christmas season. The Community Christmas Dinner is our idea to draw these two groups of people together and unite them around a traditional Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.
The dinner will be held on Christmas Day (December 25) at noon. We’ll be eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, squash and delicious assortment of desserts.
If you’re an International Student this meal is for you! We really encourage you either take part in the International Student Centre‘s Host for the Holidays program or come over to the café and join us for dinner. It’s a great way to experience an authentic Canadian holiday! If you need it, we will have vegetarian options for you to enjoy.
Plan on bringing kids? Perfect! Christmas Dinner is no fun without kids running around. We’ll have some special treats for the kids and we’ll be playing a Christmas movie after the dinner.
We’re also excited to announce that this dinner is a totally free gift to our neighbourhood. To reserve your seat, all you have to do is put down a $5 fully refundable deposit. The $5 deposit helps us confirm our numbers for the meal. When you arrive for the dinner, the $5 is refunded to you! If you pay a deposit and don’t show up for the dinner, thanks, you’ve helped cover our cost! You can register and pay for the deposit online (just scroll to the bottom of this page) or you can also get your ticket (and pay your deposit) anytime at the cafe.
To help make this all happen, we’re working with a great group of volunteers, the special help from our neighbours, University Community Church.
