Berry Chill Goes to the Beans . . .


As if Berry Chill didn't have enough going on with a new kiosk at the United Center, multiple charitable involvements and three booming locations in the city, they've just taken on yet another amazing project.

They're partnering with local, nonprofit coffee company, Crop to Cup, to premiere their own signature java that's organic, roasted weekly and ground fresh in-store. The Original Berry Chill Blend—a.k.a. Yogi's Joe—debuts Monday, Oct. 26 at the Loop location only.

But you haven't heard the best part of it yet. Crop to Cup worked closely with Berry Chill to develop this coffee blend, which comes from small family-owned farms in Uganda. One-hundred percent of revenue goes back to planting new coffee plants and educating African farmers on how to maximize profitability in the coffee trade. Check out some of the farmers who'll benefit from the program here.

To celebrate the new coffee, Berry Chill's giving away free 16 oz. cups Monday and Tuesday. And on Wednesday, Oct. 28, customers will receive a free 16 oz. of the new blend with any yogurt purchase.

Now, that's hot!
