Community Caravan

Just a quick follow up to Paddle Georgia 2006: Word reached us too late for the July edition of Fair Grounds, but we want to thank Jonathan Mattox and Bonnie Garrott for going out of their way to help us keep the coffee flowing at this year’s Paddle Georgia!!

August promises to be the calm before the storm as fall is literally just around the corner! During the next three weeks, most of Lee’s and Maty’s efforts will be directed towards roasting your coffee and completing their move into our spacious, cool new roasting facility. Meanwhile, Kristy and Tripp will be busy transforming the room that production is leaving behind into a warm, friendly place for customers and other visitors to pick up their fresh-roasted Fair Trade, organic coffee and learn more about Fair Trade and what we do here at Café Campesino. We thought we’d be ready to tell you more and share some photos of our new set up by now, but it has been hotter than, well, Georgia asphalt in the middle of summer, and we’re just plain runnin’ behind…so stay tuned!

This past Monday, August 7th, Tripp traveled 30 miles south of Americus to serve and talk Fair Trade coffee with the members of Albany’s first and only organic food coop (and new Cafe Campesino customer) Bee Green. Until Bee Green hit the scene, organic foods in Southwest Georgia had been slim pickens.  But thanks to Kristen Taylor and the other folks at Bee Green that’s changing…quickly! Bee Green has grown from roughly 30 members to 120 members in just the past few months and it appears that Café Campesino is on track to serve as the co-op’s Americus locale. You can read more about Bee Green in a recent article run by the Albany Herald. To contact Bee Green directly, call (229) 435-3373 or e-mail ubeegreen2 at

On August 25, 2006, Café Campesino will be closed as our entire crew heads to Lawrenceville, GA, for a team building experience complete with barista training at the headquarters of our friends Espresso Southeast.
