Here at Peace Coffee, we talk a lot about the connections in your cup, and our mission to connect those who drink the coffee with the ones who grow it—but have you ever wondered who put the pumpkin in your Harvest Moon Latte?

Anne Costello, Peace Coffee Director of Coffee

Earlier this month, I visited the Democratic Republic of Congo to participate in the Saveur du Kivu, the first specialty coffee cupping competition in the DRC. As a result of years of intense conflict and violence where millions of people lost their lives, the coffee market had fallen into a drastic decline. In the mid 1980s, the region produced an estimated 30,000 tons of green coffee; by…

We were happily invaded by local food blogging troupe, The Heavy Table, two weeks ago for a night of unscientific Yeti Cold Press experiments. Read here the results of our journey together.

We are partial, but Jackson's contribution, the Nashville Slammer, i…
