Alma Chocolate Starts CSI—"Community Supported Ice Cream"

Alma ice cream and chocolate

Oh, my. Sarah Hart, mistress of Northeast 28th Avenue's delicious Alma Chocolate has emailed with a new potential addiction. Portland has a ton of CSA farm-share programs. But she's launching a CSI—community supported ice cream—program this summer in order the finance the purchase of a $4,000 Pacojet ice cream maker.

She says a $150 share gets you a pint of ice cream in flavors like Valrhona chocolate or seasonal fruit every two weeks for a year (July 2010-June 2011). That works out to about $5.25 a pint. “We'll also throw in little bags or jars of extra goodies to eat on the ice cream,” she says. “Like toffee peanuts, brownie bites, caramel sauce or even balsamic vinegar...”

Read the whole sweet, melty deal below. Email almachocolate@comcast.net or call 517-0262 to sign up now—there are only 30 spaces available in this CSI.

Scratch our back and we'll... make ice cream for you!

Alma has her eyes on a fancy ice cream machine! We can't stop
thinking about all the creamy delicious treats we could be making


We decided to offer shares of our ice cream just like a CSA
(Community supported Agriculture) farm share.

You "subscribe" to a bi-monthly pint of ice cream for one year
and we get our fancy machine to make it for you!

Win! Win!

The details:
$150 share gets you a pint of ice cream every two weeks for a year
(July 2010-June 2011). You'll choose from Very dark chocolate,
Vanilla bean custard, or a seasonal (vegan) sorbet. The in-store
price for a pint will be $8, so by subscribing you get a deal Plus
we'll throw in some bonus treats, things like caramel sauce, candied nuts, chunks of toffee...

Call or email the shop to sign up or get more details.
We will take the first 30 subscribers!
