Community Caravan

Tripp spent May 5th in Atlanta serving great coffee and talking Fair Trade at the Slow Foods “The New Q…… a Twist on Old School Barbeque” event that was designed to spotlight sustainable farms, heritage breed farmers and the chefs who support them. All proceeds were donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Today, they have over 80,000 members all over the world!

On Saturday, May 19th, our friends from Ten Thousand Villages in Atlanta will be visiting us at the roastery to see how we roast our coffee and talk about Fair Trade.

From June 1st to the 3rd, the Café Campesino crew will be at this year’s Coffee Fest in Atlanta, not only as exhibitors but also as the event’s Morning Coffee sponsor. Anyone who is in the area, please stop in and visit us – we’re in booth 307! For more information, visit

June 9th through June 16th: It’s time for Bike Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) again and Café Campesino will be serving coffee and snacks as usual. Riders will begin in Columbus and end in Savannah, but not before spending the night in Americus on June 10th. We’re thrilled to have the good folks of BRAG biking through our town this year and are finalizing our plans to show ’em hospitality, Café Campesino-style. Check out our bulletin board on our home page or the BRAG website for the latest information about activities for the BRAG crew during their trip through Americus.

What do Café Campesino, Fair Trade and Georgia’s rivers have in common? Paddle Georgia! From June 23rd through the 29th, Paddle Georgia offers paddling enthusiasts a unique opportunity to gather for daily trips averaging 17 miles, nightly camping with meals, games, entertainment and educational programs, scientific research including chemical and biological water monitoring, tours of industrial facilities and historic sites, and scientific research including chemical and biological water monitoring. Café Campesino will be serving coffee to participants in this year’s week-long trip, a 115-mile canoe or kayak adventure on the Ocmulgee River from Monticello to Hawkinsville. Paddle Georgia also serves as a fundraiser for Georgia River Network and the Central Georgia Rivers Partnership. For more information, visit the Paddle Georgia website.
