At Caffé Etc., we only serve coffee that serves a purpose.
This may sound crazy to you, but we’d like to see a better world where we assume peace is the only way to solve our problems, not war. That’s one of the many reasons why we carry Thanksgiving coffee.
The family-owned company was created to link small coffee farms and cooperatives with consumers in California. The artisan coffee roaster finds the best coffee there is around the world and roasts it locally. Its goal is to promote sustainability while serving you one of the yummiest cup of coffees you will ever taste in your life.
By now you may be asking yourself why we’re talking about Thanksgiving. Well, that’s easy: we really love them! But there’s one more reason for this blog post. We’d love to talk about two blends we have for sale at Caffé Etc. that you should take home right away.
But there’s one more reason for this blog post. We’d love to talk about two blends we have for sale at Caffé Etc. that you should take home right away.
The first blend we recommend is the “Delicious Peace,” or “Mirembe Kawomera” light roast.
From Thanksgiving Company’s website:
“In 2003, JJ Keki, a Ugandan farmer, walked door-to-door asking his Muslim, Christian, and Jewish neighbors to put aside old differences, confront their challenges together, and find a better price for their coffee. His neighbors agreed, and together, they formed the Peace Kawomera Cooperative. Theirs is the story of a community who risked everything—their farms and their livelihoods—to build a more prosperous future, and peace.
The 1,032 farmers of the Peace Kawomera Cooperative produce beautiful Arabica coffee on the slopes of Mt. Elgon, in Eastern Uganda. Rich volcanic soils, antique varietals, and the farmer’s craft combine to produce a coffee that is rich and full-bodied, with distinctive hints of vanilla and nutmeg, and a nutty sweetness.
We donate 25 cents per package to the Peace Kawomera Cooperative to support schools, business development, and quality improvement.”
This single origin coffee has a sweet body and a subtle perfume of fresh vanilla bean that hide a whole lot of power. Its full-body taste is complemented by hints of nutmeg and pecan. How can you not love it?
