MINNEAPOLIS — Peace Coffee announces its new release — Pollinator, the vernal iteration of its limited edition seasonal blends. Pollinator Seasonal Blend is a light roast blend featuring natural-processed coffee from Ethiopia. It offers red fruit flavors balanced by a rich, chocolaty Peruvian coffee.
“The weather might be all over the place in March, but we’re always ready for the season with our spring Pollinator blend,” says Lee Wallace, CEO and queen bean, Peace Coffee, “This year’s version is bright and sweet — bursting with the hope and optimism we need to pour on this year. This year’s blend is a perfect companion for planting annuals in the window box or watching the robins return.”
“Our seasonal blends are designed to match the time of year,” says Jessica Yockey, head roaster and quality control manager at Peace Coffee. “For Pollinator that means spring — light and fresh with notes of raspberry, black currant and brown sugar. It’s something I will look forward to every morning.”
The seasonal blend — in its white package with distinctive butterfly and bee graphics — is available for a limited time at Twin Cities food co-ops, Lunds & Byerlys and Kowalski’s grocery stores, as well as online at peacecoffee.com.
Since 1996, Peace Coffee has been In It For Good. In their 24+ years in business, Peace has purchased more than five million pounds of green coffee from small-scale farmer cooperatives in more than 12 countries. In 2019, ninety-eight percent of its coffee came from cooperatives that Peace Coffee has had relationships with for more than five years. Three cents a pound for every pound Peace Coffee buys goes into coffee climate and carbon initiatives. The socially conscious coffee roasting company is a Certified B Corp, bringing transparency to the coffee industry while delivering expertly roasted, small batch organic coffee (often via bicycle in the Twin Cities) to its many fans in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Chicago area. The beans for its blends come from farmer-owned cooperatives in Sumatra, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, Ethiopia, Colombia, Congo, and Honduras.
