Fluid Solar Roasted Coffee

Fluid Solar Roasted Coffee is a small-scale, environmentally conscious coffee roaster located just a short walk down the road from the sugar camp. It is owned by Lorraine and Bill Kemp (Lorraine is the daughter of Mary and Russell Thompson). Lorraine and Bill have lived off of the electrical grid for 25 years, generating electricity and heat directly from renewable sources. Their coffee is delightful and roasted using energy generated entirely on their property by renewable sources. Nothing goes better with a morning sunrise at the lakeside than a hot cup of their coffee! It is available for purchase in the sugar camp during the maple season.
