Widener University unveils own brand of coffee
By Associated Press

Everyone knows college students drink a lot of coffee. So, one local university has decided to make its own brew.

Widener University is partnering with West Chester-based Golden Valley Farms to produce its own environmentally friendly coffee -- WU Brew.

It's set to debut on April 22, which is Earth Day.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Golden Valley Farms was founded by an alumnus of the Chester-based university, John Sacharok.

The company imports beans from Costa Rica for the coffee production, and university professors and students traveled to Costa Rica to learn about environmentally sound ways to produce coffee.

It will come in both a dark roast and a medium roast and sell for $13.99 per 12-ounce bag. It can be ordered online.
