Brunch Home Run
Brunch anyone? We trekked over to St. Paul last weekend to celebrate the inaugural event at the sparkling new CHS Field at Lowertown Ballpark. Grill Fest was put on by Minnesota Monthly to celebrate all things summer as we prepare for patio dining and warm morning brunches. What could go better with a summer brunch than our Yeti Cold Press Coffee? How about making it into one of two de…

Peace Coffee is now a public benefit corporation

Now we have made that official: On January 2nd, Peace Coffee became one of the first companies in the state to file as a Public Benefit Corporation under a new Minnesota law passed in the last legislative session. Minnesota joins at least 26 other states in the U.S. that define Public Benefit Corp…

This week our coffee shops release an exciting round of drinks for the winter and the upc…
