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% …

Thanks for helping us #RaiseAMug at the Fair!

09.06.2016

Peace Coffee celebrated its 20th anniversary in style at the Great Minnesota Get-Together this year. We spent the waning months of summer plotting and planning how we could increase our presence and visibility inside the Health Local Foods Area, put together by our friends at Renewing The Countryside. We put our collective heads together and dove deep into just what makes our state so gre…

A 40,000 Pound Milestone Image

A 40,000 Pound Milestone

08.09.2016

Yesterday, with much fanfare and hard work, we received a 40,000 pound cargo container of Guatemalan coffee beans. While we receive deliveries as large as this every few weeks, this container was shipped directly from Apecaform Coffee Cooperative in Guatemala right to our roastery door, bypassing other stops along the way. The coffee was harvested in late spring, put into 275 bags, each w…

#RaiseAMug to 20 Years

08.01.2016

As the steamy days of August begin, we are reminded of that feeling you get when your first mug sits just under your nose and the steam raises your eyebrows and pulls your eyelids back from their morning fog. August at Peace Coffee means we are fixing our gaze on the great Minnesota get-together. Yes, it’s time again to begin talking about the Minnesota State Fair, and this year Peac…

At Peace Coffee Pride is A Holiday Image

At Peace Coffee Pride is A Holiday

06.24.2016

By Melanee Meegan, Peace Coffee Director of Marketing

Peace Coffee won't be at the Pride Parade this year. We won't be sampling Yeti Cold Press in Loring Park, or throwing coffee beans from the back of our bike trailer along the parade route. And that's a good thing. Peace Coffee won't be at Pride for the same reason we give staff other holidays off: so our diverse and amazing people can celebrate their community. To mark the fact that now …

Peace Coffee + Twin Six Collaboration

06.16.2016

Peace Coffee and bikes go way back. Once upon a time, when we were just getting started, we had the idea of slinging a few bags of coffee on the bike to deliver to one of our new accounts. We stuck with bikes for reasons both fun and practical and our love has only multiplied. First one, then two bike delivery people, then a whole racing team, and a staff of 50+, many bikers among them. Th…
