Community Caravan

This past weekend, June 1st through the 3rd, Geoffrey, Treva Wetherell, and Tripp served up about 1,700 cups of Café Campesino brew as part of our Morning Coffee sponsorship of this year’s Coffee Fest in Atlanta. Following morning coffee, the crew moved its operations onto the show floor to talk Fair Trade, organic coffee with folks who had come from all over the country for this stellar coffee industry event. Geoffrey, Treva, and Tripp agreed that this event rocked, not only because our coffee received rave reviews, but also because everyone, from the folks who ran the show, to the exhibitors, to the attendees, gave off positive, good vibes — all weekend long. Thank you Treva and Geoffrey for all your help… we couldn’t have done it without you! We’d also like to thank our friends at Espresso Southeast and our friend Ron Lane at BUNN for everything they did to help us pull off serving 110 gallons of coffee without a glitch and in fine form to boot!

FYI, Café Campesino has already reserved its spot for Coffee Fest in Washington, D.C. next February…we’ll get you all the info when we are closer to lift off.

June 9th through June 16th: It’s time for Bicycle 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. From 9-5 on Sunday the 10th, Café Campesino will be open for business, serving up our brew, giving tours of the roastery, and doing our best to show our friends at BRAG what we’re all about, 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, Geoffrey and our good amigo Jonathan Mattox will be serving up Café Campesino for Paddle Georgia’s, well…paddlers! 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.
