Nov. 17- Savannah’s Sentient Bean visited Café Campesino in Americus. We had a great time with the whole gang, and miss them already!

Nov. 20-21 – Another great event at SOA Watch Vigil at Ft. Benning, GA.  Read about the event and the movement here.  Vast amounts of coffee sold that resulted in another donation to the cause.  We thank all those who attended and special thanks to the group from Newman Catholic Center of Eastern Illinois University who served the coffee all weekend long.  Your volunteerism is much appreciated.

Dec. 5- Carmen Iezzi, executive director of the Fair Trade Federation, visited Americus!  We were excited to have some time with a friend and leader in the Fair Trade movement.  Cheers to FTF.

Dec. 6-8- Bill is in Washington with Monika Firl for an event that, among other things, recognizes Cooperative Coffees’ participation in the United States Agency for International Development’s Farmer-to-Farmer program that encourages international agricultural development in some of the worlds poorest areas. Learn more at their website.

Dec. 9- Our Americus coffeehouse hosts Café Campesino’s annual open house from 6-9 p.m. Come one, come all!  Its always a good party.

Dec. 16- Rebecca’s going away party. If you can’t join us for a drink, toast to a great lady who’s going to be sorely missed at Café Campesino but greatly appreciated in Birmingham, Ala.- her new home starting in January.

Dec. 5- Nema and Oliver sampled Whole Foods customers at the Ponce de Leon location in Atlanta.

Dec. 5- Almeta took coffee to the ground-breaking of Rashid Nuri’s Wheat Street Gardens, an organic urban farm in development in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood that is adjacent to Sweet Auburn. Good luck, Rashid! We support you 100%! Learn more at our blog.

Dec. 8- Nectar – a fruit, smoothie and health foods restaurant in Decatur will start carrying Café Campesino! Nectar is owned by husband and wife team, Gaurav Malhotra and Naruna Rangel, who are excited to offer Fair Trade, organic coffee and espresso drinks to their existing customers. Thanks, Garv & Naruna for working with us!

Sweetwater Organic Coffee in Gainesville, Florida-
November- Sweetwater rolled out its “Give Thanks” blend of Good Morning Full City, Bali Blue Moon Viennese and the ever popular Midnight Oil French Roast. The combination was astounding and went as quickly as the holiday. Our “High Spirits” blend combines Bali Blue Moon and Bolivia Full City for a clean crisp cup with lingering berry and chocolate tones. Like 2010, this blend will be gone in a flash.

Every Wednesday from 4pm-7pm, you can find Jim and Kyle (father & son) at the Farmers’ Market in the Bo Diddley Plaza in downtown Gainesville. Armed with a wide selection of coffee for purchase and freshly brewed coffee for sampling you can’t go wrong.
