ESSPRESS-O-GRAM from Peace Coffee
Better late than never, as the saying goes, so please pardon our tardiness in letting you know that your purchases helped make 2012 another great year for Peace Coffee! We’ve captured a few of our 2012 highlights below, and we also encourage you to check out our Year in Numbers Slideshow for some fun Peace Coffee employee accomplishments. This work wouldn’t be possible without your support and partnership. We look forward to continued collaboration and another year of great coffee!

In 2012, we proudly:
  • Released our Alchemy Series, throwing open the door to the roastery to highlight the craft and unique chemistry behind each cup. These limited edition, small batch coffees feature roasting and tasting notes highlighting the art and science of coffee.
  • Launched Grow Ahead, a crowdfunding website and non-profit organization, in order to raise pre-harvest coffee financing for coffee farmers from Fair Trade coffee lovers. The first crowdfunded loan is now headed to the APECAFORM cooperative in Guatemala - who we’ve partnered with since 1999 (that’s a long time in coffee sourcing years!).
  • Added three new coffees to our classic line-up, including Peruvian, Morning Glory Breakfast Blend, and Split Decision.
  • Enhanced our seasonal offerings by introducing a Breakaway Blend (Summer) and Nocturnal Brew (Fall) to the already popular Snowshoe Brew (Winter) and Pollinator Blend (Spring).
  • Traveled to Mexico, Guatemala, and across the Pacific to the island of Sumatra to meet with and support our producer partners. While we discussed many industry challenges, including climate change and market volatility, the effect of Fair Trade is evident, and we're proud to see the impact of our long-term direct relationships around the globe.

Finally, we want to celebrate that we made it through another long Minnesota Winter, and that Spring is officially here! Grab a bag of the Pollinator Blend, and a matching mug to go with it—all for 15% off.

Simply use the code POLLY to receive the discount on all Pollinator goods! Offer expires April 15th, 2013.
