“Years before making a whole thing out of where your coffee came from was cool, George Howell was traveling to the source, buying up smaller lots, and building relationships with farmers. Stop by one of five Boston area cafes to pay tribute—service is luck of the draw, but the coffees are often quite beautiful.” Food & Wine

What a weekend showing that #ArtsMatter this season!

Did you catch the 20th annual Halloween Window Painting? Yesterday 450 children painted windows at 215 merchants across six villages in #Newton (Newton Center, Auburndale, Newton Highlands, Nonantum, Newtonville, and West Newton), and the windows were judged and given first, second, third, and comic winners by grade by village. The students will receive their awards this Tuesday at a 2:30 ceremony in the War Memorial in City Hall, with a total of 135 winners in grades 3-8.

Each student's family pays $10/child and merchants are welcome to give a donation and receive free window washing courtesy of Newton Community Pride. Many thanks to sponsors The Village Bank, Webster Bank, Northland Investment Corporation and Wellesley Bank.

Tonight is the night! @caravelacoffee will be giving a presentation on understanding costs of production in Latin America. Tonight from 7 pm to 9 pm @godfreyboston location. Please sign up here: farmgate.eventbrite.com

“Specialty coffee demands fairer prices for better-quality coffee. But without knowing how much farmers need to spend to produce a pound of coffee, and how this varies across countries and production methods, it’s hard to know what “sustainable prices” really are. By breaking down the cost structure for the average coffee farmer in each origin, we can begin to uncover what it takes for producers to operate sustainably. In the next couple of months we will be presenting the results of our Cost of Production Study in Latin America.”

This presentation will uncover how much it costs to produce coffee in 7 Latin American countries: Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The majority of coffee producers are not aware of exactly how much it costs to produce a pound of coffee, leaving them unable to effectively budget and allocate resources throughout the year, keeping them in a continually vulnerable situation. By breaking down the cost structure for the average coffee farmer in each origin, we can begin to uncover what it takes for producers to operate sustainably.

"The Agua Fresca is a simple, yet simply delicious cold brew refresher. According to George Howell Coffee's Taylor Giroux, it’s also a great way to give new life to old or unused (ideally Kenyan) coffee." - Trade Coffee

This refreshing no-waste drink is good for you and your coffee supply by using whatever leftovers you have available to brew a deliscious summer mocktail.

YES we have ice cold ❄️ deliciousness in the form of Panela-Limeade! What is Panela you ask?

Panela or rapadura is unrefined whole cane sugar, typical of Central, and of Latin America in general, which is a solid form of sucrose derived from the boiling and evaporation of sugarcane juice. Panela is known by other names in Latin America, such as chancaca in Peru, piloncillo in Mexico. #drinkinthecold
