Community Caravan

Written by Cafe Campesino on Mar 1, 2004 in Community Caravan, NEWSLETTER |

With spring beginning, Café Campesino is diving headfirst into a full schedule, with coffee festivals, conventions, bike rides and more! We’ve never been complacent when it comes to spreading the word about our excellent coffee, and we’re chomping at the bit to introduce more people to the great idea (and great taste) that is Fair Trade.

From March 19-21, our roaster Lee will be in Washington, D.C., at this springs’s CoffeeFest. CoffeeFest Trade Shows are held three times a year, in D.C., Las Vegas, and Seattle. Each CoffeeFest is a complete industry-wide trade show, with invaluable educational programming, Free-Pour Latte Art Competition, new product showcase, opening night reception, incredible special attractions and tremendous networking opportunities. It’ll be a terrific opportunity for Lee to see the latest products available and network with peers.

This year, as in past years, Café Campesino’s coffee will be served at Greenprints 2004, March 18-19, at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. Co-hosted by our long-time customer Southface Energy Institute, Greenprints brings together practitioners and visionaries committed to changing the way people think about architecture, planning and the use of natural resources.

Next month, we’ll be back serving up coffee and morning snacks at the B.R.A.G. Spring Tune-Up, April 16-18 ( Geoffrey and Victoria will be serving coffee to the sleepy masses in Milledgeville. If you’re interested in trying the week-long B.R.A.G. ride in June, consider warming up your bike legs with us in Milledgeville, GA.

The next weekend will see us in Atlanta at the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s 16th Annual Conference & Exhibition. From April 23-26, we will be sharing a booth with Larry’s Beans ( and Bongo Java Roasting Co. (, fellow members of Cooperative Coffees ( Cooperative Coffees will also be represented, and we’ll be serving up Fair Trade coffee, in both regular and espresso. If you’ll be in Atlanta that weekend, be sure to stop by the Georgia World Congress Center and say hello!

In addition to these events, Café Campesino has signed on to join many other local Sumter County businesses in the Partnership in Education plan with Sumter County Schools. Every couple of weeks, we’ll be going out to the schools to talk about Fair Trade and environmental issues. We’re very excited to have this opportunity to bring knowledge of the Fair Trade movement to the youth of our community!
