DOMA and the world's largest fair trade coffee break


The always dashing Ben Delaney forwarded this press release from our favorite coffee roaster, DOMA:

Post Falls, ID (Friday, May 8, 2009) – Americans across the country will gather in unison on Friday & Saturday, May 8 & 9, to surpass last year's largest Fair Trade coffee break to support the growing popularity of Fair Trade in the United States. DOMA Coffee Roasting Company will take part by hosting a FREE Fair Trade Coffee Break to help highlight the benefit of Fair Trade to farmers, producers, consumers and the environment.

Hey, how bad can that actually be? This will take place Friday, May 8, 2009, 9:00 am-11:00 am, at 6240 E Seltice Way in Post Falls. And even if Fair Trade isn’t your cup of tea (wa-hey!) you can always go for the coffee! You might just learn something too.
