Community Caravan

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jan 1, 2005 in Community Caravan, NEWSLETTER |

This has been a very busy past few weeks…and the next few months promise even more activity on the outreach front for Café Campesino!

During the weekend of January 8-9, Tripp and Lee visited our friends at Phoenix Market in Athens, Georgia and Sevananda Natural Foods Market in Atlanta to sample our coffee and talk about Fair Trade with the markets’ customers. While they were in Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal Constitution ran a fabulous article about Café Campesino and our Fair Trade company…follow this link to read the article.

On January 22nd, Tripp and Lee will be traveling to Manna Grocery & Deli in Tuscaloosa to sample our coffee and talk about fair trade with Manna’s customers.

On January 30th, Bill leaves for two months in Guatemala! He will be working hard and playing hard during this extended stay. Mornings will be filled with Spanish lessons and in the afternoon he will occupy a desk in the offices of Manos Campesinas (well, not every afternoon…) Between visits with the cooperatives and Spanish school; a few volcano hikes are planned, a side trip to Chiapas is in the works, and his parents are headed down in March! Stay in touch with Bill via bh(at) .

On February 3rd, Tripp will travel to The Sentient Bean to participate in a Sumatra Relief fundraising event at the coffee house’s Savannah locale. The following week, Tripp will be journeying with his six year old son Hugh to visit Bill and our producer partners in Guatemala.

Finally, on February 12-13, while Bill and Tripp are playing in Guatemala, Lee will be representing Café Campesino at the Georgia Organic’s annual meeting on the campus of West Georgia Technical College in Waco, GA. He will be passing out samples of coffee, selling 1 lb. bags and sampling as many of the organic goodies available that time will allow.
