sumatra relief update

"the aceh tsunami relief fund, established by coffee kids in partnership with forestrade inc, has made a complete shift to supporting the reconstruction of local community infrastructure in the coffee-growing gayo highland region in central aceh."

we all remember -- don't we? -- the devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami in sumatra last december. those great people at coffee kids were quick to respond with a program to aid coffee-growing families in the region.

they've been very good about updating us donors and the general public on where that money has been going. and today we learn of the new phase in their efforts.

this is a long-term, massive effort, and the public shouldn't forget. . .

the weather here in nyc continues to be late august. but i can't complain, since i'm living happily on the the last of suzanne's kona, iced, with light cream!

yummers -- further, i can't tell you how wonderful it is to be able to enjoy suzanne's coffee, direct from her, the farmer; and to be able to know her, to develop a relationship with the person who grows your coffee. . .
