One of the first coffee companies to take up the ‘Bird Friendly®’ certification was Birds & Beans Canada, founded and still operated by Madeleine Pengelley and David Pritchard. Building on their start, in 2008 Scott Weidensaul and Bill Wilson launched Birds & Beans® coffee to make it easy for coffee drinkers in the US to buy Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center ‘Bird Friendly’ coffee. Kenn Kaufman and Dr. Bridget Stutchbury joined us in our mission as Birds & Beans ‘Voices for the Birds’. Author and teacher Katie Fallon is our most recent ‘Voice’. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is Birds & Beans national ‘Conservation Partner’ and joins with local and regional ‘Conservation Partners’ in our bird conservation advocacy. In June 2013 we launched a program with American Bird Conservancy to work with coffee farmers in the Americas to gain Bird Friendly certification, to address challenges organic farmers face today and to educate consumers in North America about the important bird conservation and sustainability benefits generated by buying and drinking coffee with the certification.

Blue Marble says “Yes, please!” to nature, integrity and honest indulgence, and “No, thank you!” to hormones, antibiotics, harmful pesticides and artificial additives. Our dairy is certified organic, sourced from pasture-raised cows. It’s better tasting, of better quality, and better for us. Our flavors are classic, straight-forward and pure. “Elemental,” as we like to call them. Instead of packing our scoops with sugary candies and other preservative-laden mix-ins, we let Mother Nature speak for herself. Come try a scoop and taste the difference today.

Kimchi Taco Truck & Kimchi Grill was born out of founder Phillip Lee’s desire to share his love for Korean food with the world. The inspiration for the menu also comes from Phillip’s love of street food and marrying different flavors to create innovative and contemporary cuisine. The diverse menu includes street classics such as tacos, burritos, as well as culinary first, “Tofu Edamame Falafel Taco” - a vegetarian option made with tofu and edamame. Continuing the Korean tradition of serving delicious and healthy food, the Fresh Kimchi Bowls offer lighter versions of the burritos without the tortilla. The Kimchi is homemade and all of the dishes are topped with fresh or sautéed kimchi.
