Larry and Kevin have been working their tails off to bring sustainable coffee to our neck of the woods. Now they are helping out with sustainable fuel. Their passion for sustainability has grown almost as large as their business, and in fact sometimes they find that doing business just gets in the way of what they are trying to achieve.

Rachel helped them convert their bus to SVO a long time ago, and Kevin came for a tour of the coop when it was but a gleam in Lyle’s eye. Larry’s Beans is Piedmont’s first fueling presence east of Jordan Lake, and it sure feels good to finally take the pressure off.

For now you need a fuel card to fill up here. Each card is attached to a coop membership, which is attached to a credit card, which means you will get a fuel bill monthly.

We haven’t always been this sophisticated. We think it was the gallon of organic coffee that we downed at one of our Monday meetings that brought us to this point. If you would like to jump into fueling from this location, call the Control Room at 919-321-8260 and we will get a card mailed out to you.

    Later today I’m coming from Philadelphia to spend the weekend in Raleigh, it’s my first visit to the area. I would love to fill up with biodiesel if possible but see that your pumps are for Coop members only. Can you point me towards any retail locations selling B20 or greater? Or, is there a member on site that would take cash from me in exchange for a one-time use of their Coop card?
    Regardless of what the answer is, I appreciate the work you-all are doing and wish you the best of luck!
