One of the most popular regional gathering spots for business, friends, food and coffee, is the Cornerstone Coffeehouse, in Camp Hill. Owner Sue Pera and Manager Nicole Miller stay busy keeping the operation as planet-friendly as possible while serving up the java. The majority of Cornerstone’s coffees are fair trade/organic, helping to raise and stabilize wages for small coffee farmers.

Their Bird of Paradise coffee comes from three protected biospheres, meaning that the farmers use natural techniques to invest in the health of the soil and coffee trees. Swiss water process (without the use of chemicals) decaf coffees are used. Food is served on real plates and silverware, rather than disposable.

Customers are encouraged to bring their own mugs and are rewarded with a 10 percent discount, and everything that can be recycled is. Every box, can, container and recyclable waste is meticulously processed and recycled.Even used coffee grounds are saved and distributed to local gardeners and farmers to use as a soil amendment.

The Cornerstone Coffeehouse is located at 2133 Market St., in Camp Hill. For more information, call 717-737-5026 or visit
