Introduction: June 2010

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jun 1, 2010 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

Welcome to Fair Grounds, the monthly e-newsletter from Cafe Campesino.  As you probably know by now, we have long been a member of Cooperative Coffees – a green coffee importing cooperative, comprised of 23 community-based coffee roasters in the USA and Canada.  As part of our work within our cooperative, we sometimes have opportunity to participate in travel abroad to meet and work with our coffee growing friends.  As this edition ofFair Grounds was “going to press”, we were all prepared to tell you about the latest travel venture to Guatemala to participate as co-facilitators for a Catholic Relief Services ‘CAFE Livelihoods’ project.  But… Mother Nature had other plans.  A volcanic eruption postponed the original airplane flight.  Then some devastating flooding occurred and, at his point, has sidetracked the entire trip before it began.  While there is disappointment in the postponed trip, our thoughts are much more with the folks suffering from the natural disasters of volcano and tropical storm.  Blessings to all those affected.  We’ll update the situation in next month’s newsletter.

Before we continue with the rest of this June edition of Fair Grounds, we want to say farewell to Jason Foster and Tyler Willis. Both longtime and much-enjoyed baristas at our coffee house in Americus, we sure hate to see them leave. But we understand that opportunities for bigger and better things await each of them and we certainly wish them the best in the adventure. Adios amigos.
