Introduction: February 2010

Written by Cafe Campesino on Feb 6, 2010 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

Welcome to the February 2010 Fair Grounds. As always, we’re glad to have you with us. And exceptionally glad to have our Bill Harris back, safe and sound, in Americus. You see, Bill and some friends from Bean North in the Yukon Territory recently spent an “extended” time in Peru at the base of Machu Pichu, a most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire and often called one of the “Seven Wonders of the World”. On a quick sightseeing venture following a week of work, the extremely heavy rains caused major landslides and widespread flooding at the popular tourist destination only accessible by train or foot trail. They were “trapped” for several days before being airlifted out via helicopter by the Peruvian government. Our baristas have mixed up a celebratory drink in honor of the safe return – check it out in this month’s recipe.

We also have another installment in our Sustainability Series (thanks, Jaimie), a trip report from Tripp as well as the possibility of blazing new ground in the Fair Trade movement. There’s a quote from a beloved author and historian that recently passed as well as the familiar Community Caravan and our Newsletter Special. Speaking of special, it’s not too late to order something for that certain someone. Valentine’s gift ideasĀ are here.
