Introduction: September 2010

Written by Cafe Campesino on Sep 7, 2010 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

Welcome to the September edtion of Fair Grounds. We’re excited to tell you the good news that our newly redesigned blog is now officially ‘open’.  More on that below in the first story of this newsletter.  Its also time to remind you about the great things happening at Cafe Campesino Atlanta in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market including expanded hours and bulk coffee-by-the-pound.  Stop by to see for yourself and say hi to the staff there.  Angelica, Almeta, and crew are doing a wonderful job in getting the word out about our presence in Atlanta.  And you can help by letting friends and family know about it too.  Be sure to read more about CC Atlanta in Community Caravan.
Enjoy this edition of Fair Grounds and be in touch if we can be of assistance with your fair trade, organic, shade grown coffee needs.  Cheers.


Ever want to know what happens before you get a cup of coffee? (with the coffee, that is…) Well, Café Campesino and Sweetwater Organic Coffees are launching a new blog to chronicle exactly that – the “crop-to-cup” experience. Fair Trade Wire will bring news from the “front lines “of fair trade coffee offering readers insight into the production and harvesting processes, the needs and testimonials of coffee farmers, the meaning of Fair Trade and its application in the production, importing, roasting, and serving processes. Look for our posts this week and next as we report on the Fair Trade Futures Conference , a Sept 10-12, gathering in Boston that brings together hundreds of Fair Trade producers, consumers, advocates and practitioners from around the world.
Also, keep an eye out for our “Reports from the Field”- updates from Tripp, Bill, and whomever else is in-country with coffee farmers. These will be reports about their work and experiences and transcriptions of interviews with farmers. The blog will also hear from other important players in the supply chain – our importer, Cooperative Coffees – our roasters – Café Campesino in Americus and Sweetwater Organic Coffees in Gainesville and our coffee houses – one in Americus and one in Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn Curb Market, will also contribute to this blog.
The purpose of bringing all of these perspectives under one roof will be to flesh out back-end of Fair Trade coffee for consumers- to reflect the life that’s behind the daily cup and to offer coffee drinkers the depth they look for when they reach for Fair Trade, organic, specialty coffees.
In addition to a Fair Trade coffee blog, the site will also serve as an archive for Fair Grounds newsletters. So if there’s a Fair Grounds recipe or quote that you haven’t been able to find since 2002 ….you now have a place to find it! Easy Espresso Pumpkin pie, quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson, and so much more – visit, stay, learn, comment and come back to Fair Trade Wire.
