Recently retired Grounds for Health executive director August Burns said: "This is a preventable disease that women, at the height of their productiv- ity, may die from needlessly. Grounds for Health is grateful to have an industry leader like Volcafe, along with other companies and individuals along the supply chain, commit to preserve the health of women coffee growers We applaud their collective efforts and assure them, they are saving lives." Current executive director Guy Stallworthy, who takes over the non- profit after seven years with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, echoed these sentiments: "I'm excited to continue this relationship and explore ways to strength- en our presence in coffee-farming communities around the world."

The first of 60 planned Juan Valdez Cafés opened this summer. "We are confident that these highly- anticipated concept stores will be well-received by the Miami community," said Hernan Mendez, c.e.o. of Juan Valdez Café. "While our locations and spaces may differ slightly from one another, our mission remains the same – to provide high-quality, premium coffee to the city's discerning coffee drinkers." The first destination store in historic downtown Miami, with a second Downtown location to follow next week, represents an important step in the international expansion of the Colombian coffee brand. These Miami openings will contribute to the brand's international presence that currently includes nearly 300 Juan Valdez Cafes in 13 different countries including Aruba, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, the United States, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and South Korea.
