Peace Coffee Events Team

It sounds a little like the beginning of a perplexing word problem: If one member of our intrepid events team started setting out cups of coffee at 8:55am on August 25th and she laid 267 cups per hour, 12 days later at 9pm, how far would she have gotten? Turns out, it's a trick question. Had she done it alone, she would have left a trail of cups 1.52 miles long before she collapsed exhausted …

The Places in a Cup

09.15.2011

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

by Anna Canning, Special Correspondent Since moving to Portland, I've been thinking a lot about place and the concept that, for lack of a better English word springing to mind, I'm calling "placedness." Even when lost in a new neighborhood, there’s a sense of familiarity: a sense of how the light slants, the scents of the place (musty ivy, boxwood hedges, tree blossoms), the way it rai…

Peace Coffee Events Team

It's State Fair time again! Our events team is all abuzz for our biggest event of the year -- last year we gave out over 42,000 cups of coffee! It's not just big for us: we checked the numbers and, in terms of daily attendance numbers, Minnesota throws the biggest state fair of all the 50 states!* We think that calls for a little local pride, so this year we'll be brewing up our Twin Cities Bl…

Our latest offering comes from a new origin for us: Honduras! COPROCAEL is nestled in the mountains of the Ocotepeque department, wedged between the borders of El Salvador and Guatemala. We've been in preliminary conversations about sourcing a Honduran coffee for over a year and are delighted with what's in the cup, kicking off what we hope will be a fruitful trading relationship. Back in Janu…

Anna Canning, Special Correspondent

Is this the way that we’d want the world to be? We ask that question of ourselves a lot here at Peace Coffee. It gets phrased differently, but the sentiment dictates many of the business decisions that we make: Organic coffee? Yes, please. Bike delivery? Naturally. Caffeinating our local community at the amazing events that the Twin Cities hosts? As much as we can possibly fit into our sc…

Justin Young, Peace Coffee Racing Team

We are at the mid-point this year for the2011 Minnesota Mountain Bike Series, and the Peace Coffee Racing Team didn’t take long to get settled into the saddle. Peace Coffee Racing also went about exceeding any and all expectations. In fact, they’ve set the bar pretty high. We have a lot of new happenings this year with Peace Coffee Racing: a brand spanking new website, as well as n…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

I could go on endlessly about the loveliness of summer. While it's not my favorite season (that honor goes to each new season as it comes, to be replaced in its turn by the next comer), it's the one that's best suited to my chronically chilly constitution. I can't be all alone in this -- each year, the city seems to expand a little as the days lengthen. Just as there are now, as if by magic, mo…

I didn't start out as a coffee person. Growing up, my mother heralded each day with a cup of Lipton tea with lemon and a gooily heaping teaspoonful of honey; we didn't have coffee in the house. Coffee was that stuff whose red and gold can my grandmother paired with her Marlboro reds and her yellow pleather breakfast nook (an aside: she had a matching coin purse and cigarette case with clicky cl…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

Sometimes a cup of coffee is just a cup of coffee -- or so I've heard. Most days around here it isn't. It's brightness or earthy notes, hints of citrus or sweet cedar; it's Fondo Paez or Chajul, Yirgacheffe or Sidama; new harvest or last year's crop, but never just a cup of joe. Because of our commitment to having our staff travel to origin, most tend to be partial to the beans grown by the gr…

Perhaps you've already noticed it in the grocery aisle; perhaps you're an avid follower of the commodity markets; or perhaps you've read, seen, or heard the news lately: coffee prices are up. "What's going on in the commodity market?" seems to be the question of the season. It's a complex system and experts disagree on the precise causes of the rapid rise in coffee prices that have now reached…
