Coffee talk

Posted by: Karin Hoffman, Communications

This weekend the Burke welcomes Pangaea Organica, an employee owned cooperative coffee roaster located right here in Seattle. While sipping on their organic, fair trade, single origin coffees from around the world, you can learn about fair trade and how their cooperative company is committed to their customers, product, suppliers, environment and each other. Stop by Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm to sample their coffee.

In the meantime, check out this video on fair trade produced by EQ.TV, a network of people committed to sustainability. The video features local vendors committed to supporting fair trade as well as the UW’s Fair Trade Coalition and Parnassus CafĂ©.
