Happy Holidays from Camas DECA, a business and marketing club at CHS! Students will be selling bags of coffee that feature four winning student-designed labels. Sales are open to families and community members from Fri., Nov. 22, through Thurs., Dec. 5, for $10 per bag. Every purchase raises funds for important local projects – and will give one student team bragging rights for selling the most bags!
Where Does the Money Go? We’re Glad You Asked!
  • Every $10 bag of coffee generates $5 in profits. (Thank you, BJ’s Coffee Roasters!)
  • Three dollars from each bag will be donated to the CAROL program, which provides food and gifts to families in need and is coordinated by the Camas-Washougal Fire Department.
  • Two dollars from every bag will go to Camas DECA to help offset competition travel costs.
Choose from two blends from BJ’s Coffee Roasters of Vancouver:
  • Primo Blend (Ground or Whole Bean) – One of BJ’s most popular blends. Smooth, mild, and crisp for an excellent morning coffee. Medium roast.
  • Espresso Blend (Whole Bean) – BJ’s espresso blend consists of four very distinct origins. Together these coffees produce an espresso that is rich in flavor, with full body and luscious crema. Medium roast.

More About the Project from Advisor Suzie Downs
Our coffee project is part of the Marketing 1/Intro to Business curriculum to teach students about product branding and entrepreneurship. Each class is marketing and selling their own unique brand label to compete with the other three participating classes. This project helps students understand what it takes to brand a product, take it to market, sell it. They also have to deal with competition, as there are three other businesses selling coffee to their target market, YOU!
