A Happy Holidays – One Ugly Sweater at a Time

The holiday season is a little nutty around here.  Excited regular, decafFair Trade, organic, flavored, and seasonal blend-lovin’ people are buying coffee for the holiday crowd like there’s no tomorrow and we, of course, are as busy as an one-armed paper hanger.

So, as I said, nutty.

But today a true depiction of our holiday wackiness made itself apparent in a little something called Ugly Christmas Sweaters.  Everyone has one and some wear them in public - even in our office.

May I present our top two favorites?  To ease you into the ugliness, our silk-screened runner-up:

Then there's The Ugly Christmas Sweater.  Yes, “The” Ugly Christmas Sweater – a piece of red, green, and tinseled apparel so hideous that it deserves its own zip code, let alone a “The” in front of its name.  It's hard to describe this lovely woolen beauty, so let’s hear from Chris, the wearer of this repugnant sweater, as he describes his auction find:

The events committee of my graduate program decided to use a “tacky holiday sweater theme” for our annual winter gathering and give a prize to the person with the ugliest sweater…guess who won?

Happy Holidays from us!  Hope you find beauty in the holidays – even when events are as homely as our sweater collection!



Down:2:Earth Expo

On April 3rd I traveled, along with two of my coworkers, to the Down:2:Earth Expo in Boston, MA. We were invited to exhibit at "Boston's premier destination for conscious consumers...a marketplace for eco-friendly products, a public stage for community initiatives, and an educational forum that addresses sustainability issues on the minds of us all".

After a rainy drive down on Friday and a smooth booth setup, the expo opened that evening for the  Local Bites Preview Party. This was my favorite part of the whole weekend. There was food and beverage sampling from area restaurants/breweries. I discovered one of the restaurants actually has a shop up in VT. If you're in Burlington, check out Boloco: Inspired Burritos on Church Street.

We met some interesting companies and people while sampling our Organic House Blend Decaf, Spring Revival Blend and Island Coconut (all Fair Trade and available now!). Island Coconut got the most attention, having many surprised coffee-connoisseurs raving about a  flavored coffee! We also liked seeing Equal Exchange, who not only showed up in this great ride but were grinding their coffee beans on the spot as well as sampling their delicious chocolate.

Another highlight of the weekend was seeing so many familiar VT faces! We were among many Vermont companies who made the trek to D:2:E. Cabot setup right next to our booth, providing me a constant supply of their Seriously Sharp, Horseradish and Chipotle Cheddars. I learned from the Cabot folks that all their cheese is lactose free since they naturally age their cheese. Other Vermont companies in attentendance were Vermont Soap (my bag still smells like lavender), Brighter Planet, Ibex, and Tara Lynn Studio.

We'll be back in Boston next weekend at the Project Hunger's Walk For Hunger. The Walk for Hunger is the country's oldest continual pledge walk and the largest one-day fundraiser to alleviate local hunger.

Sign up for the walk - your support will help provide nutritious meals for those who would otherwise go without in Massachusetts.


Recipe: Pumpkin Mocha Supreme

One of our most popular seasonal Fair Trade coffees is Pumpkin Spice.

People tell us they can’t wait for fall…and then they stock up on Pumpkin Spice like little squirrels. The cinnamon and nutmeg flavors are even better when you add a touch of hot chocolate.  Try this yummy Fair Trade recipe:
