If you haven’t been following the MVP race on Facebook, you should check it out. The stakes are high – the All-Star team members will receive a fabulous prize package and the MVP wins a year of free coffee. The competition is fierce and there’s still plenty of time to cast votes. Round one, to pick the All-Star Team, runs until May 19th. Round two will commence on May 21st and the winner of that round will determine the MVP. Several players are doing a great job of earning their spot on the All Star team, with Craig and Michael as fierce contenders for the eventual MVP honor…but the votes are tabulated daily so we’re sure there are surprises in store! You may vote for as many players as you wish, via their trading card, each day.
Our remaining anniversary events are detailed below:
Friday, May 11, at 7 p.m. – a special appearance by author Majka Burhardt, author of Coffee Story Ethiopia: A Tale From The Country Where Coffee Began. Burhardt will lead a discussion based on her experience in Ethiopia where the indigenous people are embracing the heritage and potential of their defining crop, a plant first accounted for in legend more than three thousand years ago and that now ranks among the world’s ten most-valued commodities. Burhardt will also sign books for attendees.
