Café Campesino, which became Georgia’s first and only 100% fair trade, organic coffee company when it was founded, is celebrating its 20th anniversary October 5-6 in Americus. Customers, friends and coffee lovers are invited to events that include coffee tastings, a latte art class, panel discussions and opportunities to find out more about Koinonia Farm and Habitat for Humanity, two Americus organizations dedicated to social justice and affordable housing. Festivities will also feature two evenings of live music and local food.
During the past two decades, Café Campesino has grown into a national online retailer and wholesale coffee distributor operating from its flagship coffee house and headquarters in Americus. The business supplies organically grown, artisan-roasted Arabica coffee and is a member of several organizations devoted to fair trade relationships with small-farm cooperatives all over the world.
