Through The Breast Center, each donation of Amy's Blend coffee is lovingly placed into the hands of a woman whose life has been touched by breast cancer. The donations directly benefit the breast cancer survivors in the community. "It's nice to know that The Breast Center of Suburban Imaging is right down the street from our Caribou store," said Coon Rapids Caribou Manager Candace Osterberg.

The Breast Center staff get to experience firsthand the joy and appreciation that these donations bring. "Patients are so delighted to receive the coffee," said Lori, mammography technologist at The Breast Center. "It really makes them feel special. It's also a wonderful feeling, as a technologist, to be able to place the coffee in their hands and see their faces light up."Through The Breast Center, each donation of Amy's Blend coffee is lovingly placed into the hands of a woman whose life has been touched by breast cancer.

Amy's Blend coffee is a tribute to Amy Erickson, a Caribou Coffee Roastmaster who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1995 at just 33 years of age. The coffee is sold on an annual basis, with a portion of sales benefitting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. For more information about Amy's Blend, please visit www.cariboucoffee.com.
