Flat Rock Eats & Drinks is situated in an ideal spot for the young people of North County to grab drinks and happy hour delights after enjoying the beach. Right next to the famous VG Donuts and Cardiff beach, this place is hopping with excitement! They offer not only local brews on tap that rotate frequently, but a full farm to fork menu. Flat Rock all started just a few months ago when high school buddies, Chris, Chef Josh, and Colin decided to go into business together to open a bar. They have been open for four months now and offer delicious breakfast with $1 mimosas, and of course, DELICIOUS Coffee!
Come check them out right off of the 101 – 102 Aberdeen Dr, Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
Here at Virtuoso we take sustainability seriously – sustainability for the water, soil, wildlife, and people. Which is why we don’t just stop at our mission of 100% Organic coffee beans; we source most of our coffee through fairly traded routes. 75% of our coffees we purchase come from certified fair trade farmers, which means that on top of the $2.00/lb extra we pay for our organic beans and organic practices, we pay even more on top of that to ensure our farmers are getting paid what they deserve.
Fair Trade Certified means that all the people in the supply chain for that product abide by strict regulations in regards to transparency and social justice. Farmers need to earn a minimum livable wage for each pound of coffee they produce and export. That means less middlemen and less money lost along the way back from developed country consumers to developing nations suppliers.
