Our longstanding relationships in coffee communities have helped facilitate several projects at coffee origin communities. From our first project 1999 with Finca El Paternal in Guatemala, it was clear that we could positively affect farming communities while assuring long-standing sourcing relationships with some of the best coffee farmers in the world. While it may not seem like it when you are sipping on delicious white chocolate mocha, your purchases have helped support us in community projects all over the world. Your business has provided school supplies for an orphanage in Sumatra, planted shade trees in El Salvador, and placed water wells in East Africa.
We have been a sponsor of Portland’s Walk for Water held each March on the Portland waterfront. In partnership with other Pacific Northwest roaster, we collaborate with Portland Global Initiatives to raise awareness of the growing global water crisis and to help fund much-needed water wells in African communities.
