Meet Your Maker 2019


Join us on Saturday, March 2, 2019, 9am-6pm, for our third annual Meet Your Maker event at the Co-op! We’re celebrating the growers and producers that make our community food co-op unique.


At 9am start your day with a fresh cup of coffee from local roasters Milagro Coffee y Espresso of Las Cruces and Red Rock Roasters in Albuquerque. Meet the folks that roast your favorite local coffees, learn about their techniques, and get some tips for brewing the perfect cup of coffee at home.
