Pollinator Returns! Image

Pollinator Returns!

02.15.2011

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

We're optimists here in Minnesota. As soon as we get a day or so above freezing, we're ready to call it spring. In preparation for those days (we always seem to get a tantalizing handful of them around mid-February), we're pleased to announce that the Pollinator, our beloved spring seasonal, is back. While spring is often heralded as a time of new beginnings, it’s every bit as much a time…

Last Spring when our roasting team created the Pollinator blend, they asked the question "How many cups of coffee does it take to make a blend?"The answer was somewhere in the mid-80s. Most recently, we've asked an analogous question: How many miles and how many meetings does it take to meet a new buying relationship? The answer, of course, is that it depends. Just before Thanksgiving, our Head…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

As a professional coffee person, I have an embarrassing confession to make: I don't have the means to make coffee at home. Somewhere in the course of moving, my trusty press pot and I parted ways and I didn't replace it. After all, every morning I go to a place where I'm surrounded by fresh coffee and my pick of a lab full of equipment with which to brew it. Weekends when I don't work, I tell m…

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

Here in Minneapolis, all but the last hangers-on of the leaves have fallen from the trees and we're hunkering down for the frigid half of the year. Meanwhile, thousands of miles south of here in the highlands of Guatemala, months of daily rains have given way to the flush of jasmine-scented blossoms that grow into coffee cherries. Just as we've stored all the squash that we’ll be getting …

Kyle Feldman, Peace Coffee Customer Service

Sitting by the front door of the bustling Peace Coffee world headquarters, I have the benefit of meeting and interacting with the friendly and diverse customers that walk through the door to pick up our Fair Trade coffee for themselves or their organizations. Mom-and-pop coffee shop owners, hasty chefs, leisurely church volunteers, manic pre-school PTA moms, AA group hosts, firefighters - the l…

Late Night Yeti Sighting

07.15.2010

Anna Canning, Peace Coffee Project Manager

What does a cryptozoological* creature have to do with a delicious cup of coffee? At first we tried to explain the mystery away: clearly, Yvonne the yeti and her friends had arrived in our muggy Minnesota summer to rescue us with their cooling super powers. Yet several years and umpteen delicious drinks later, the mystery remains. I was up too late the other night. Perhaps it was the heat, per…

Lee Wallace, Peace Coffee Queen Bean

It started with a simple idea really: if our goal as fair traders is to benefit farmers, shouldn’t farmers be involved in that conversation? Just over two years ago, we expanded our structure to take what seemed like the next logical step: formally including coffee producers in the structure of our importing cooperative structure, guaranteeing that they have a voice at the table. I was …

Angelica Getahun, Peace Coffee Events & Outreach Coordinator

For several years the people of Colombia have been fighting against the perception that they are all part of the narco-trafficking trade. A leader in this effort has been the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia (FNC). The FNC, which is a non-governmental organization, has been working with and supporting coffee farmers since 1927. They do this by ensuring that profits go back to c…

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…
