The Coffee Calendar is a yearlong celebration of the history, culture and politics of coffee. The calendar pages feature dates highlighting coffee's long history of trade, rebellion, fashion, scandal, innovation, land use, flavor and economy.
Those of you who carried the 2008 version may be interested to know that it won a National Calendar Golden Award for best graphic design. This year's is just as full of new original art on the full range of coffee history, culture, politics and ecology.
