Article: Upcoming Event

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jun 1, 2010 in Article, NEWSLETTER |


Cafe Campesino is gearing up for the Bike Ride Across Georgia. This will be the 11th year we have taken our coffeehouse on the road. Each morning we will brew up 30-40 gallons of coffee for riders who expect fresh, fair trade, organic coffee as a part of their riding experience. At the end of each day’s ride, many will also stop by for an Iced Mocha to replenish some calories and enjoy a well earned reward for riding between 40 and 60 miles.

Geoffrey has already arrived in Americus to order supplies and get all the gear ready. He will be joined this year by Nick Gizzi, a newcomer to the BRAG coffeehouse experience. Nick worked atPascal’s – a coffeehouse supplied by our roastery in Gainesville, Florida – Sweetwater Organic Coffee – so he is not a newcomer to fair trade. If you’re on the ride, be sure to stop by and congratulate him, for he has just become engaged.  The wedding will be later this summer.

Cafe Campesino will again this year be donating 10% of our coffee sales to the Dream Team. The BRAG Dream Team is a group of middle school students from cities across Georgia.  BRAG sponsors the Dream Team on its annual cross-state bicycle ride in June. Since its inception in 1994, an average of 10 middle school students from low-income families have been selected to participate on the Dream Team and have received bicycles, helmets, shorts and other accessories, complimentary meals and waived registration fees. Learn more, and make a donation to this great 501(c)3 organization on the BRAG website .  You can also support the Dream Team by ordering some BRAG Brew on our website.

We look forward to seeing all our BRAG friends again as well as meeting some new ones. The event runs from June 5-12 and you can read all about the ride here.
