Peace Coffee Racing Update

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…

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…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

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!

02.15.2011

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…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

As a professional coffee person, I have an embarrassing confession to make: I don't have the means to make coffee at home. Somewhere in the course of moving, my trusty press pot and I parted ways and I didn't replace it. After all, every morning I go to a place where I'm surrounded by fresh coffee and my pick of a lab full of equipment with which to brew it. Weekends when I don't work, I tell m…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

Here in Minneapolis, all but the last hangers-on of the leaves have fallen from the trees and we're hunkering down for the frigid half of the year. Meanwhile, thousands of miles south of here in the highlands of Guatemala, months of daily rains have given way to the flush of jasmine-scented blossoms that grow into coffee cherries. Just as we've stored all the squash that we’ll be getting …

Kyle Feldman, Peace Coffee Customer Service

Sitting by the front door of the bustling Peace Coffee world headquarters, I have the benefit of meeting and interacting with the friendly and diverse customers that walk through the door to pick up our Fair Trade coffee for themselves or their organizations. Mom-and-pop coffee shop owners, hasty chefs, leisurely church volunteers, manic pre-school PTA moms, AA group hosts, firefighters - the l…
