How to Change the World

Invent Environmentally Friendly Technologies

Meet the “Pio-nator Air Purification Afterburner System  Our system named after St. Padre Pio.

  • Evening Star Coffee Roasters is proud to be working with a co-designer in the development of coffee roasting ancillary equipment that purifies the air that exits coffee roasters.  We are currently testing the design on our coffee roaster.
  • My “Pio-nator” purifies the exhaust air that exits our roaster by removing smoke and effluents associated with roasting coffee.  Our new design replaces current technologies that use 600,000-800,000 btu of energy while in operation.  In addition, it eliminates the need to spend $4,000-$6,000 every 4-6 years to replace the catalyst on existing equipment.
  • “Pio-nator” sends a strong statement that Evening Star Coffee Roasters cares about the environment, and the wonderful world we live in.

Plant Trees

Consider planning an outing to a local nursery with your family and plant trees in your yard. Trees are beautiful and help the environment.  They provide a barrier to noise and harsh weather.  Trees will create privacy that will last for many years to come.  A selection of trees in your yard will attract a unique variety of birds to your property.  Grab a cup of “Bird Lovers Brew” and watch the beauty unfolding in your yard.
