Organic coffee with a conscience at PCC

This article was originally published in March 2013

Sip by fragrant sip, each cup of coffee you enjoy from PCC’s espresso bars, bulk bins or packaged selection helps support a brighter future for coffee workers, songbirds and the local economy, just to name a few.

We hold our coffee to the same high standards as all the foods in our stores. So at PCC, our entire selection of coffee beans — including the beans used at our espresso bars — is certified organic, shade-grown, fairly traded and locally roasted. Learn more about our standards and our purveyors.

DIY egg substitutes

As with all baking detective work, a good way to deduce which egg substitute to use in a particular recipe is to first consider its role. Need a cake to rise or get light and fluffy? Add vinegar and baking soda, whose fizz contributes natural leavening. Want to mimic the richness of eggs? Silken tofu or plain yogurt will lend a wonderful creaminess.
