An Ethical Coffee Meeting with Agros International
This past Wednesday, Dan and I had the opportunity to visit Agros HQ in Seattle. It was a great time and they were very hospitable to us. We were able to share some of the new things CICR has been working on. Many new faces (for me at least) were there for the meeting.
Our customers all know of our close relationship with Agros as we talk about it all the time. Just as it’s important for us to communicate to you the changes you create through being members of our Coffee Lover’s Club, it’s also important for us to spend time communicating our focus on ethical coffee with Agros as well. For us, giving Agros a check from our Coffee Lover’s Club orders is only a sustainable act if we can also communicate with Agros and allow them to communicate back. Knowing of Agros’ future goals is part of responsible giving and ethical coffee. Allowing Agros to communicate their goals back is part of responsible receiving. We’re so happy to have a wonderful relationship with Agros.
Dan brought his camera and took a few pictures in between making Frozen X-plosion’s and serving brewed coffee.
The table we sat at had a wonderfully colorful tablecloth. Emily at Agros provided Dan and I very delicious sandwiches! Shannon grabbed Dan’s camera when he came out with the Frozen X-plosion’s for everyone and took a couple great pictures: Here are a few of the Agros workers enjoying Frozen X-plosion’s. The purpose of our visit was for me to share CICR’s vision for ethical coffee with Agros and “update” them on the things happening around CICR. All-in-all, we had a great time celebrating ethical coffee and sustainability.
