After a long week of camping and music at Bonnaroo 2011, I wanted to stop in to a place where I could relax and edit through the endless amounts of pictures that were taken from my vacation. Peace Coffee was just that, a quiet, clean and bright environment to throw some headphones on and get some work done. I have been noticing Peace Coffee popping up in lots of different places around town. I even saw ground Peace beans being sold at the Lyndale and 36th Ave. S. BP gas station. I thought that was pretty interesting in what types of places local roasters are sourcing their beans too. Peace Coffee was also being served at Birchwood Cafe in the Seward Area, which I had the pleasure of trying out for the first time this week. I watched as the barista took her time preparing my drink, and it definitely showed through in taste. The consistency of the drink remained true as I enjoyed it, and the espresso definitely showcased itself prominently. I always love the little ginger cracker that they serve with their espresso drinks and it is still the only place I have come across in the cities doing this. I’d like to attend one of their coffee training sessions that Peace Coffee holds on site to learn more about their principles and techniques that they concentrate on. They hold open invitations for the public most of the time for these sessions and can be very informative to learn about all the things Peace Coffee is doing to keep the business of coffee sustainable.
