State Fair by the Numbers Image

State Fair by the Numbers

09.15.2011

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 …

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…

Late Night Yeti Sighting

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…

Travels in the Birthplace of Coffee

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 …

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

Mid-winter at staff meetings, talk of farmer visits comes up on our agenda list. Peace Coffee has a rotating travel program, which gives all of its employees an opportunity to visit the coffee growers we buy from. We visit several farmer partners every year, although sometimes several years pass between visits to some of the coops further away. It had been three years since anyone from Peace Co…

Melanee Meegan, Peace Coffee Dir. of Marketing

In early March of this year I was fortunate enough to travel to Indonesia to visit our coffee partners in Sumatra. I landed in Medan, the third largest city in Indonesia, and drove immediately ten hours to Takengon, which sits on a tiny lake bordering the renowned Gayo Mountain coffee region. The dry processing plant for all of the Gayo farmers is located in Takengon and referred to as Trimaju.…
