Peace Coffee


How it all began...


Naturally, it started in a
convoluted way. I was looking through
one of my recycled, free
magazines I'd found on the donation
table at the library.
I saw this turtle in an ad
and just
had to make a button.
But when I pressed the final one
in that day's little batch, my
peace turtle was missing.

I was so disappointed.
It was my favorite
find.
I looked everywhere.

If you could see
my current
art room space
you'd know that's an easy look.


I decided two circles must have clung together
and my image was now
lost ~ permanently sealed
underneath another image.

I would have to take up
one of my missions ...
'throwing an eye'
in hopes of finding
another ad one day.




brown paper packages

A few days later while I was
involved in another escapade,
I glanced down and to my
surprised delight...there was
my adorable circle.
It was a sign.
I immediately pressed the button.

I wanted it for Evan.

He loves coffee and always searches
for both organic and fair trade
so I knew he would be excited

to investigate this website.
Besides, added bonus ~
bicycles were involved.



100% Fair Trade

Boy did he love the site.
We promptly placed
ordering on our wish list.
Sneaky wife that I am, however,
I cheated.
I took the first opportunity
~ his birthday ~
to secretly order our first
samples.

And I must add:
The coffee is roasted per order.
I mentioned Evan's impending
birthday date
and the wonderful people
there considered that.



the goods...

I love finding packages on
my porch, but you can also
search the peace coffee site
to see if you are lucky

enough to find peace coffee
in your area.



little extras are extra groovy

Aside from the delicious coffee there's
peace gear
& tea.

Evan had admired
their water bottle for his bike rides.
I included one in my first order.

He loves it.


heed this warning...

Did I say first order?
Yes, I did.
These photos are order #2.


if you love coffee...

I have another story.
{surprise}
In 1984 I went on
an unusual
{as in rare, as in only ... ever}
weekend

getaway to Guaymas, Mexico.
Seriously, the most
remarkable memory
of those 3 days was
the unbelievably delicious coffee
served at our hotel.


I have been talking about,
searching, and pining away for
that coffee ever since.
Evan's birthday was also a
treat for me because I
have found my dream coffee.
I ordered others for Evan
but he loves it, too.
This time we ordered 2 pounds of it.




variety is the spice of life...

I know Evan.
He will try something
new & different
with each order.

We know he won't be disappointed.

Joonie, what a great story, told only as you can tell it. For some crazy reason I am now picturing the Wilkinson family singing the Java Jive together in perfect harmony.

I think Jimmy and I will try this one. Thanks for the tip. Jimmy just roasted a batch using our popcorn maker. We buy green beans on Ebay or direct from the farmers' websites and roast them ourselves. But this one sounds too good to pass up.

Great blog Joonie. I love coffee !!! I love the button .
My sis gets fair trade coffee from a church she
visits. It is not often but it is great when she gets it.
