Spring Changes

03.01.2012

While it's beginning to look like winter may come to an end and spring may come at last, far to the south in coffee lands, it's harvest time. A new harvest of coffee always brings fresh flavors to the roastery and this year is no exception. We have been preparing for this new season of coffee and have some exciting changes to share with you. Line-up changes: While we anticipate the arrival of …

Nikki Halverson, Customer Service All Star

You might be asking yourself, "What is the Peace Coffee crew doing brewing coffee with glass lab equipment?" This is the Chemex! All the rage back in the 1960s and '70s, this stellar piece of brewing equipment is back. Chemex’s history goes back to 1939 when Peter J. Schlumbohm, Ph.D (1896 - 1962), designed the Chemex. Born in Germany and a graduate of the University of Berlin, he…

Brian Steehler, Peace Coffee Van Driver

Hi, Brian Steehler here, van driver for Peace Coffee, car aficionado, history buff, and, now, world traveler. Last October I was thrilled to go on my first producer trip to the Dominican Republic to learn from the farmers, get to know them, and see coffee cultivation firsthand. I made this trip with Lee Wallace, Queen Bean at Peace Coffee; E.J. Dawson, Co-op Coffee's cupper from Montreal;…

Lee Wallace, Peace Coffee Queen Bean

There's a lot of conversation these days about our economy and the myriad ways in which it's broken. Whatever your policy solution, there's a wish that our humanity and our pocketbooks weren't so estranged from one another. How does one build an economy that values people and relationships? Last month our Queen Bean (a.k.a. CEO), Lee Wallace, explored that topic from the vantage point of…

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

There's always something whirling in the roastery. Whether it's beans in the roaster, whirlwind travel schedules, crazy concoctions in Head Roaster Derek's imagination, or the ordinary hustle to get beans roasted and out the door, something's up. I caught up with Derek to hear about all of the above. He'd just returned from a visit to Co-op Coffees' lab in Montreal, where he joined members of …

Since his return from Montreal, we haven't seen much of Derek as he's been in the lab putting the finishing touches on this year's interpretation of our winter seasonal, the Snowshoe Brew. This year, one of the ingredients that he's especially excited about is a natural-processed Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. A special coffee, it imparts distinctly gingery notes to the blend, its trademark spice. Bea…

Kyle Feldman, Peace Coffee Customer Service

Coffee has been so intertwined with American culture and routine for so long that it cannot help be taken for granted by most of those who rely on it for their daily dose of energy or pleasure, or their chance to relax. For many of us, it is easily accessible and not usually worth more mental, physical, or emotional consideration than making sure that it is the right temperature or strength to …

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

Roasting coffee has a romantic sound to it. One of the old-school trades that one rarely learns from a book, the delicate balancing act between science and art is generally learned through apprenticeship from another roaster and a lot of trial and error. It's often a rather solitary pursuit that involves hours by a hot machine, the din of the motors drowning out the sound of anyone nearby. How…

Peace Coffee Events Team

It sounds a little like the beginning of a perplexing word problem: If one member of our intrepid events team started setting out cups of coffee at 8:55am on August 25th and she laid 267 cups per hour, 12 days later at 9pm, how far would she have gotten? Turns out, it's a trick question. Had she done it alone, she would have left a trail of cups 1.52 miles long before she collapsed exhausted …

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

by Anna Canning, Special Correspondent Since moving to Portland, I've been thinking a lot about place and the concept that, for lack of a better English word springing to mind, I'm calling "placedness." Even when lost in a new neighborhood, there’s a sense of familiarity: a sense of how the light slants, the scents of the place (musty ivy, boxwood hedges, tree blossoms), the way it rai…
