Community Caravan

First of all, kudos to Geoffrey and “J” who pulled off another record-setting BRAG (Bike Ride Across Georgia) event. Besides the quantity of coffee they served, Geoffrey and “J” were impressed by the number of people who participated this year and the warm hospitality they received from the folks in Madison, Georgia…thanks to all for another great BRAG gathering…see you this summer at BRAG 2005 from June 11th to the 19th!

Lee returned from the SCAA in Seattle on a Sunday night “red eye”, spending all of his waking in-flight hours dreaming of a new 30 Kilo roaster to help him keep up with Café Campesino’s growth.

On Friday, April 22nd, Lee and Tripp make a short journey down to Albany to serve samples and talk Fair Trade at Tommy Mac’s Country Store…one of the best natural foods markets in the state of Georgia.

On Saturday April 30th, Tripp and Lee will be at Manna Grocery & Deli (featured in this month’s Customer Spotlight) to participate in their 25th anniversary celebration, serve samples of Café Campesino coffee and, of course, talk fair trade with the good people of Tuscaloosa, Alabama!

Tripp will be peeling off on the return leg of the journey to Manna Grocery & Deli to attend the All Things Organic show in Chicago on May 1-2, where he will contemplate the possibility of a Café Campesino presence at next year’s show.

Café Campesino will be serving coffee on May 14th at this year’s Run Americus 5K & 1 Mile races to benefit New Horizons – Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sumter County. Some say that Bill will actually be seen running in this race, with Tripp trailing behind if he can break away from serving coffee long enough!
