Community Caravan

Written by Cafe Campesino on Dec 1, 2007 in Community Caravan, NEWSLETTER |

A big thanks to Geoffrey, who spent the weekend of November 16-18 in Columbus, Georgia, for the School of the Americas Watch, where he served up tons of Café Campesino coffee to the thousands of students, people of faith, and human rights activists attending the annual vigil. The School of the Americas Watch (SOAW) is a grassroots movement that stands in solidarity with the people of Latin America to close the SOA/WHINSEC and to change what many believe is the oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the SOA represents. This makes the ninth year that Café Campesino has served coffee at the SOAW. We also want to extend a hearty thanks to our friend Sheila Crowley and the many other folks who went out of their way to volunteer and help Geoffrey keep the java flowin’.

Bill just returned (literally) from a 12-day journey to Sumatra where he met with our friends at PPKGO, attended meetings between FLO (Fair Trade Labeling Organization) and our producer partners there and visited a few new potential partner groups as well. We’re all waiting to learn more about Bill’s experience in Sumatra… stay tuned for his trip report in an upcoming issue of Fair Grounds.

Café Campesino’s annual Open House is this Thursday, December 13th. Please join us at 725 Spring Street from 5 to 9 pm for an evening full of coffee, espresso, hors d’oeuvres, holiday shopping, and, well, just a darn good time!

You never know what perfect gift idea you’ll stumble upon at the roastery while sipping on a cup of fresh-roasted, freshly-brewed Café Campesino coffee! We have everything from Fair Trade soccer balls to handmade pottery, finger puppets to handbags, and much more. Café Campesino will be open from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, December 22nd for your last minute gift shopping convenience! Stop by the roastery at 725 Spring Street for our amazing Fair Trade sale. And, of course, our coffees, teas, chais, Guayaki and Dagoba products will be available.

Café Campesino will be closed on Monday, December 24th and Tuesday, December 25th for Christmas. Be sure to get those orders in early to avoid running out of coffee! We will re-open on Wednesday the 26th. We will close again on Tuesday, January 1, 2008, and will resume normal hours on Wednesday, January 2.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and we wish you and your family a joyous holiday and a prosperous new year!
