Keith Tomlinson, Peace Coffee Staff

In early September, as part of grant work with Cooperative Coffees and Catholic Relief Services (CRS), I traveled to Oaxaca City, in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Traveling with me was Brad from Larry's Beans, Joe from Third Coast Coffee and Monika with Cooperative Coffees. The work that we were doing with Catholic Relief Services involved several days of workshops followed by two days of visiti…

Stacy Adrianson, Peace Coffee Customer Service Manager

She came in quietly and climbed into a chair. Her feet were dangled in midair, nowhere near the ground, and her hands folded neatly in her lap. She was introduced to us as Zillda, secretaria of the Vigilance Committee, a group of co-op members who ensure the co-op is run with member's interest in mind. It was early morning. The sun was still rising over the mountains, the air damp with dew, and…

he wind is getting colder even if the tomatoes are still on the vine, and just around the corner is October which is both Fair Trade & Co-op month. The phrase "Fair Trade coffee" has become ubiquitous in some circles, especially among co-op shoppers, but in the spirit of Fair Trade month, we ask, "what’s at the bottom of that cup?" What does it mean to say that those beans got there "…

Keith Tomlinson, Peace Coffee Staff

It is with great humility and excitement that I introduce our most recent quarterly coffee offering here at Peace Coffee. This single origin Full City Roast Peruvian coffee comes as a result of a trip that I took to Peru last June. While in Peru as a part of a trip with Cooperative Coffees, the importing vessel that we are members of, in the city of Jaen we were given a tour and demonstration o…

Lee Wallace, Peace Coffee Queen Bean

In mid-November, I ventured to Ethiopia with fellow coffee travelers Monika Firl (producer relations, Cooperative Coffees) and Mark Glenn (co-owner of Conscious Coffees, based in Boulder, CO). This was my first trip to Africa, and I was really excited. There's also something incredibly meaningful for someone who works in coffee to travel to the birthplace of coffee. In addition to what I was …

A New Path in Peru, Part II

Ketih Tomlinson, Peace Coffee Staff

It has been nearly six months since I was in Peru. In my last installment of my Peru newsletter story, I talked about my trip up to the mountains, meeting Lucia Zurita-Zurita, and the work we did with Cenfrocafe. Cenfrocafe was one of two cooperatives that we visited while in northern Peru. Cepicafe is the other. Cepicafe is significant to Peace Coffee in two main ways. First, they are the orga…

Keith Tomlinson, Peace Coffee Staff

During the end of May and the beginning of June, I traveled around northern Peru with a group of seven people (myself included) to meet with two organizations from which Peace Coffee sources coffee through Cooperative Coffees. Our first stop was the cooperative Cenfrocafe. They formed in 1999 when 8 associations representing 220 coffee producers joined together. This action was a result of a pr…

Joe Moskowitz, Peace Coffee Dir. of Finance & H.R.

The roaster is starting to smoke. What's worse is no one in the café seems to notice or care. I nervously ask the barista, in my broken Spanish, how long they have been roasting this batch. "Un hora" she replies. I can't help but wince at this length of time, thinking of our 15 minute batches in the roastery at home. Luckily she doesn't notice. If only our roasters could see this, I thin…

Melanee Meegan, Peace Coffee Dir. of Marketing

I've been serving up a lot of our Colombian Heavy Pedal coffee at various bike events this summer. Heavy Pedal is a reference to the amount of weight that our bike deliverers pedal across town every day. As far as the delicious taste of the coffee, the credit is all due to the Fondo Paez Cooperative in Colombia. Earlier this year I visited the Páez farmers who grow this coffee in the cen…

Melanee Meegan, Peace Coffee Dir. of Marketing

It's been five years since I visited Nicaragua. The last time I went, Peace Coffee wasn't yet buying any Nicaraguan coffee, although our green buying coop,Cooperative Coffees, was. This trip was not strictly an annual Peace Coffee farmer vist. Instead, I was representing Cooperative Coffees to talk with United Students for Fair Trade (USFT) about all the ways 100% Fair Trade companies can partn…
