For more than a dozen years now, Peace Coffee has been roasting up fair trade, organic beans from farmer coops around the world. Last year I had the opportunity to visit their roastery in Minneapolis and spend a day touring the city’s finest cafes where just and sustainable cups are served up from Peace Coffee.
Peace is somewhat unique in that they are owned and operated a non-profit organization called the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. They are unusual in some other ways too. For instance, they’re kinda wacky about bikes. Check out this brand new video from them that I just got from Melanee Megan, Peace marketing director (gotta love that title, a Peace marketer).
