Getting back to the brewHoliday season 2008… that means CoffeeInAction has left the desperate public with nothing to buzz about. We sincerely apologize. Not to worry. The book of everything (our log and notebook from the trip) has found its way back into our loving hands. Charming Chicago is next and both Melanie and Sara were, in fact, charmed. The “Windy City” is filled with social entreprenuers, local-community oriented businesses, and of course, sustainable coffee. Not to mention good friends and great times! And I (Sara) do promise you the conclusion of our road trip, and maybe some insight into our learning by February 2009. If not, I will buy anyone who has been negatively affected by our slacking a bag of sustainable coffee when they come to visit in Boulder. Happy reading!

Personal updates en route as well.

How Lovely

We can’t think of a better way to spend Valentine’s day.

Thanks to the enthusiasm of PJ, a friend of the beautiful Laina Solomon, Coffee In Action: Road Trip 2008 has its first event!

Feb 14th, 4:30-6:30 at Artmosphere Cafe in Mt. Rainier, MD, we will share the inspirations, aspirations and itinerary for our trip.

ARTmosphere Cafe

I am incredibly excited about this. “Love Your Coffee” is officially the first event for Coffee In Action: Road Trip 2008.

This will be our first chance to present our ideas to a group of total strangers who are waiting to hear from us. It will give us an opportunity to connect with a collection of people, and that is such a big part of what CoffeeInAction is about.

Melanie and I are going to learn A LOT during the next few weeks about coffee business, the coffee industry, road trips, and coffee itself. We are also going to encounter great people along the way. Events like this one allow us to engage with many new people, and hopefully encourage people meet each other, too!

Feb. 14th, 4:30-6:30pm at Artmosphere Cafe – bring your mug and $5 for all the coffee you can drink. Artmosphere Cafe will provide a number of socially responsible coffees.

We’ll let you know how it goes!
