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…

Halva nice summer

06.01.2016

No matter how many years it has been since your calendar counted off the semesters, there's always something about this time of year that gets the refrain “School's out for the Summer” running through our heads. It's the season of road trips, of patios, of lake cabins, and adventures. This year's Summer drink menu is inspired by that spirit of adventure, as interpreted by our b…

in it together

Minnehaha Avenue is getting a major facelift this summer and while that will be good news for the neighborhood next summer, for now, it provides challenges for local businesses like our Wonderland Park location. While access along the roads will be more difficult April through November, we'll be open for every minute of it. And to reward you for making the trek, we're offering a few specia…

Springtime at Peace Coffee

04.20.2016

It’s finally springtime in Peace Coffee land. The earth seems to be waking up all at once from its much needed rest. The ground that was hardened by the winter frost is now softening and we’ve taken the snow studs off our delivery bike tires. Ah, it’s much more pleasant to roll down the Greenway trail with warmer winds in the gleaming sunshine. This sentiment is echoed in…

derek's favorite food from indonesia

04.18.2016

One of the joys of staff visiting coffee farmers is hearing how their own personal interests filter their experience: The bookkeeper travelling in Chiapas takes pictures of the co-op's ledgers, the bike delivery guy comes back with photos of innovative ways bikes are used for transportation in Guatemala, etc. And thus it's no surprise that our Head Roaster Derek returned from his trips to…

Spring Drinks are Here

03.01.2016

Spring Break is almost here, which means that it's sunny somewhere. In the spirit of eternal optimism and jaunts to warmer climates, we're offering up our spring drinks, even if the ground hasn't thawed yet. Found My Thrill Found my Thrill is our latest take on a Cafe Miel and a tribute to the inimitable Fat's Domino's version of the song “Blueberry Hill.” We've sweetened the…

Celebrating 20 Years

02.04.2016

At this time of year, we start to anticipate the arrival of the first few samples of the Mexican and Central American harvest at our roastery. Each new crop varies a little from the previous year's, and there's always a flurry of activity as the roasters get acquainted with the new crop. We've been buying from many of the same cooperatives for many seasons so it's like a reunion with old f…

Valentine’s Day starts right … MEOW!

02.03.2016

Aside from coffee (and bikes), there is nothing that we adore more at Peace Coffee than our cats.

We've also created a list of our favorite #catsofinstgram and cat videos below. Enjoy! Cats of Instagram We Love @Catsby_the_bookshop_cat Because we …
