SCAA Members-our friends at Green Mountain Coffee just passed along this upcoming virtual tasting event they have scheduled on May 6th-details below!

• Date: Thursday, May 6, 2010

In addition to its entrancing taste characteristics, Spring Revival Blend offers a compelling story of hope. Included in this blend is coffee from Rwanda, a country still recovering from a brutal civil war. By collaborating with TransFair USA and the Cordes Foundation on this limited edition coffee, we help support Rwanda’s economic revival as well as small farmers who produce extraordinary beans. Get a real taste of Fair Trade, and learn what it means to farmers in Rwanda and around the world.
