Behind the Bean at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters
Rick Peyser and Bill Mares
Part travelogue, part inspiring social commentary, and part motivating business model, Brewing Change is about Rick Peyser’s quiet, dogged crusade to change the world of coffee. During his 24 years at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Food 4 Farmers co-founder Rick has been a persistent voice advocating for better quality of life in coffee-farming communities. He has teamed up with long-time friend, writer, and Food 4 Farmers Board member Bill Mares to tell the story of his career and of his travels throughout the coffee lands of Latin America and East Africa.
Rick and Bill are donating their portion of the book’s profits to Food 4 Farmers, and Wind Ridge Publishing has generously offered to donate a portion of their profits as well, through the end of July.
