Green Scene Cafe members at Kobos Coffee's Roasting Floor
You may not have heard about The Green Scene Cafe, but this program is doing some incredible things. The cafe is set up in Wilson High School’s cafeteria as part of their Life Skills program. “The program prepares young men and women with moderate and severe disabilities (e.g., Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, Developmental Delays) for work in well-respected community jobs so that they can support themselves as adults and become involved members of the our community“ (Program Director, Dominic LeFave).

The Green Scene Café started serving Kobos Coffee in November. To help in the learning process Ed, Brian, and Rob held an all day training session. The group had coffee tastings and went through the full process of the coffee trade: importation, handling, preparation, roasting, and packaging.

We are honored to have Kobos Coffee be part of such a program!
