For every pound of coffee we roast, 5 cents is donated to the World Coffee Research.

THE BACKSTORY

From when we started, we have been looking for more ways to contribute to better lives for coffee growers. We initially gravitated towards charities that worked on socioeconomic projects, like safe water, education, and others. But that changed with our first visit to coffee farms. Hearing first hand from several farmers how their biggest challenges were things like climate and coffee plant diseases, we knew that’s how we wanted to support coffee producers – by helping them with sustainable lives by growing better coffee.
