Hangin' at the State Fair

Peace Coffee Events Team

It's State Fair time again! Our events team is all abuzz for our biggest event of the year -- last year we gave out over 42,000 cups of coffee! It's not just big for us: we checked the numbers and, in terms of daily attendance numbers, Minnesota throws the biggest state fair of all the 50 states!* We think that calls for a little local pride, so this year we'll be brewing up our Twin Cities Bl…

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

Our latest offering comes from a new origin for us: Honduras! COPROCAEL is nestled in the mountains of the Ocotepeque department, wedged between the borders of El Salvador and Guatemala. We've been in preliminary conversations about sourcing a Honduran coffee for over a year and are delighted with what's in the cup, kicking off what we hope will be a fruitful trading relationship. Back in Janu…

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

Is this the way that we’d want the world to be? We ask that question of ourselves a lot here at Peace Coffee. It gets phrased differently, but the sentiment dictates many of the business decisions that we make: Organic coffee? Yes, please. Bike delivery? Naturally. Caffeinating our local community at the amazing events that the Twin Cities hosts? As much as we can possibly fit into our sc…

Justin Young, Peace Coffee Racing Team

We are at the mid-point this year for the2011 Minnesota Mountain Bike Series, and the Peace Coffee Racing Team didn’t take long to get settled into the saddle. Peace Coffee Racing also went about exceeding any and all expectations. In fact, they’ve set the bar pretty high. We have a lot of new happenings this year with Peace Coffee Racing: a brand spanking new website, as well as n…

Yeti Summer Adventure

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

I could go on endlessly about the loveliness of summer. While it's not my favorite season (that honor goes to each new season as it comes, to be replaced in its turn by the next comer), it's the one that's best suited to my chronically chilly constitution. I can't be all alone in this -- each year, the city seems to expand a little as the days lengthen. Just as there are now, as if by magic, mo…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

I didn't start out as a coffee person. Growing up, my mother heralded each day with a cup of Lipton tea with lemon and a gooily heaping teaspoonful of honey; we didn't have coffee in the house. Coffee was that stuff whose red and gold can my grandmother paired with her Marlboro reds and her yellow pleather breakfast nook (an aside: she had a matching coin purse and cigarette case with clicky cl…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

Sometimes a cup of coffee is just a cup of coffee -- or so I've heard. Most days around here it isn't. It's brightness or earthy notes, hints of citrus or sweet cedar; it's Fondo Paez or Chajul, Yirgacheffe or Sidama; new harvest or last year's crop, but never just a cup of joe. Because of our commitment to having our staff travel to origin, most tend to be partial to the beans grown by the gr…

Perhaps you've already noticed it in the grocery aisle; perhaps you're an avid follower of the commodity markets; or perhaps you've read, seen, or heard the news lately: coffee prices are up. "What's going on in the commodity market?" seems to be the question of the season. It's a complex system and experts disagree on the precise causes of the rapid rise in coffee prices that have now reached…

Pollinator Returns!

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

We're optimists here in Minnesota. As soon as we get a day or so above freezing, we're ready to call it spring. In preparation for those days (we always seem to get a tantalizing handful of them around mid-February), we're pleased to announce that the Pollinator, our beloved spring seasonal, is back. While spring is often heralded as a time of new beginnings, it’s every bit as much a time…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

Last Spring when our roasting team created the Pollinator blend, they asked the question "How many cups of coffee does it take to make a blend?"The answer was somewhere in the mid-80s. Most recently, we've asked an analogous question: How many miles and how many meetings does it take to meet a new buying relationship? The answer, of course, is that it depends. Just before Thanksgiving, our Head…
