In Highland, Maple City Roasters coffee is now available at Humane Indiana’s PAWS Resale and Gift Shop on Kennedy Avenue in keeping with the shop’s theme of selling locally made products. PAWS features a curated selection of locally-made products from small businesses in northwest Indiana. Proceeds from PAWS support Humane Indiana’s shelter, clinic, and wildlife rehabilitation center. Maple City Roasters is based in LaPorte County out of Michigan City. “Humane Indiana wanted to add coffees and teas to the assortment of local goods we sell, and Maple City Roasters is a favorite in local coffee shops, farmers’ markets, and gourmet shops. We are excited about this opportunity to offer their products at PAWS,” said Humane Indiana CEO Brian Fitzpatrick. Maple City Roasters imports coffees from all over the world and roasts the beans locally several times a week. “The key to great coffee is in the roasting,” said Scott Ott, Owner and President of Maple City Roasters. “Roasted coffee beans achieve their peak flavor and aroma right after roasting, and we roast our beans several times a week and ship them immediately right to your door, or to our partners, like Humane Indiana. As animal lovers, we are proud to partner with Humane Indiana and PAWS Resale.”
