North Central College students recently brewed up a business relationship with a Midwest grocery chain. Four of the Jewel locations here in Naperville are currently selling Conscious Bean Coffee, produced by North Central’s student-run business NCC’s Best.
“All proceeds go to the students at North Central College who produce the coffee. So that’s a good way for them to get a real lesson in business as part of the project,” said Karen May, Spokesperson for Jewel-Osco.
The Students in Free Enterprise, or SIFE group at the college, travels to Guatemala annually to collect the beans as part of a direct trade with local farmers.
They come to the Jewel stores about once a month for demonstrations so customers can get a taste of the product.
