Sparky’s Blend was developed by former co-owner Rob Miller, before his passing in May of 2019. This unique combination of dark coffees will kindle your desire to start each day with your best foot forward. Carrabassett Coffee Company has made it available to you in memory of Rob Miller (Sparky), as part of a charitable effort to support local organizations. A Maine local, 'Sparky' preferred to spend his time outdoors, skiing, biking, and fishing. Because of his great enjoyment of nature’s offerings, a portion of proceeds from sales of Sparky’s Blend will be donated to charities which focus on helping others get out into the fresh-air. For every pound purchased, two dollars of the sale price will be donated, along with two dollars matched by Carrabassett Coffee Company.
This Quarter's Recipient of The Sparky’s Blend donations will be the Carrabassett Region NEMBA.
Mountain biking has a long and rich history in Carrabassett Valley and the surrounding areas. The Carrabassett Region Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (CRNEMBA) was formed more than a decade ago to promote the sport, develop a world-class destination trail network, and foster a vibrant and inclusive biking community in the region. While the focus of efforts to date have been Carrabassett Valley, trail development is underway in Kingfield as well and the organization was strengthened in 2019 through a merger with Kingfield Trail Builders.
CRNEMBA is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the idea that mountain biking can be enjoyed by almost anyone and that trail development can be an important part of sustainable economic development in the region. CRNEMBA hosts or supports a wide range of events throughout the year for riders of all abilities.
