Coffee is what brings us together today. Image

Coffee is what brings us together today.

02.02.2017

In a time of seemingly incessant focus on what divides us, what our differences are; We’ve been trying to focus on what brings us together, what we have in common. Are you having trouble wading through that cloud of negativity too? Okay, we’ll start. Coffee. Wonderful, magical, invigorating, essential, gorgeous coffee. One of life’s great equalizers. Like music, or a smi…

Trade in your fruitcake for a rootcake Image

Trade in your fruitcake for a rootcake

12.24.2016

It's that time of year. Our ovens are warm to stay the cold winter winds, and our Nordic Ware pans are ready to recieve all the delicious treats we can cram into a weekend of baking! One thing I keep coming back to year over year is this recipe for Parsnip bread, my own personal antidote to fruit cake. I give these 'root cakes' to family and friends as part of my most favorite holiday trad…

Happy Holidays & Warm Wishes...

12.19.2016

from our mug to yours. It has been wonderful celebrating 20 years of Peace Coffee with our loyal customers and partners throughout 2016, and on December 9th we had one more rather festive celebration in the roastery that was filled with Ugly Sweaters, Pizza Lucé, and merriment. Our 20-year Ugly Sweater Open House brought over 300 customers and wholesale partners together to go out …

A Decade of Roasting Image

A Decade of Roasting

12.16.2016

This year marks my tenth anniversary as a roaster at Peace Coffee. As the year has progressed, I've been thinking a lot about what I've learned over the years, which coffees have really stood out, what I love about certain green coffees, and how my roasting and profiles have evolved over the time. Fondo Paez is definitely one of those coffees that have stood out over the past decade. When…

Climate Change: In Your Daily Cup Image

Climate Change: In Your Daily Cup

12.01.2016

I’ve always been drawn to coffee. Not necessarily to coffee the crop, or the beverage from which many of us get our daily caffeine, but to what happens specifically in any space where coffee is served. It could be a group of folks around a dinner table, or perhaps a few regulars sitting on soft seats in the opening moments at a neighborhood shop; coffee has a way of bringing people t…

A Coffee Shade of Winter

11.30.2016

Winter. The days are short, the weather is cold, our layers are thick, and sometimes a warm drink is just the ticket. We’ve concocted a menu to celebrate the flavors of the season and warm you through and through. Our perennial winter favorite, the Fireside Chat is back. It’s an Americano (espresso + hot water) spiced with orange oil and a dose of clove syrup: sweet, spicy, an…

Bulking up on co-ops Image

Bulking up on co-ops

10.17.2016

October is Co-op Month and that's good timing for us. As we look back on our first 20 years, we marvel at and appreciate the critical role that co-ops play in our entire supply chain. Here in the Twin Cities when we were just a fledgling coffee company with Paul Bunyan-sized dreams, food co-ops were some of the first to believe in us—and to offer space for our beans in their bulk bin…

A Word on Automatic Pour Over Machines from Jackson Image

A Word on Automatic Pour Over Machines from Jackson

10.10.2016

A good number of coffee making machines are popping up these days that call themselves “automatic pour over” machines. These machines started out as super fancy, boutique-y numbers like the Chemex Ottomatic and the Ratio Eight, costing hundreds of dollars and boasting minimalist chic for the person who needs their coffee maker to both make exceptional coffee and match their Des…

Pedaling Peace 20 Years Strong

09.22.2016

Peace Coffee and bikes go way back together. We actually started bike delivering our coffee before we could afford our own roasting machine, but two roasters and a few delivery vans later, bikes remain central to what we do. We ride to work, we ride for work, & sometimes we ride for fun after work—in short, we collectively spend a lot of time in the saddle. One of the most sough…

Fall Colors Have Never Tasted So Good

09.09.2016

The State Fair is past, which means that summer must be winding down. We’ve updated our menu to keep pace with the seasons, and transition you smoothly from the summer lemonades to pumpkin spice season. To help ease you along, we’ve mixed up the Fall Fizz. Available only in September, this sparkling house-made soda brings the seasons together in a tall, refreshing glass: 100% …
