We Have Teamed Up With The Following Charities
Grounds for Health
Grounds for Health:
Women are the backbone of the coffee workforce, especially at origin where they provide 70% of the labor planting, picking, sorting, and processing the coffee beans. Cervical cancer is the #1 cause of cancer death in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia, where coffee is grown; and, it is entirely preventable with early screening and treatment. Grounds for Health is an international non-profit organization with a mission to prevent cervical cancer in coffee communities. We work within the public health system to develop a sustainable, comprehensive program to keep women healthy and stop deaths from this entirely preventable disease.
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted:
To aid in the revitalizing forests, we are partners of One Tree Planted. For every $1.00 donation, you provide at checkout, we plant a tree in a coffee-growing region to combat deforestation. Trees help clean the air we breath, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's biodiversity. Forests also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people and key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Read Our Other Mission Statements
Everything we make, buy and sell, leaves a carbon trail that we are responsible for reducing. Our first step of action is to offset our prior years' operation and then set ourselves on a path for naturally reducing our emissions through thoughtful business choices. Learn more about this initiative here.
We put a freshness, quality, and consistency guarantee into every bag of our coffee. For freshness, we source our raw materials during the current and optimal season. All of our blends and single origins are of the highest quality ranging from 86 – 89pt+. Finally, consistency comes down to roasting in small controlled batches for the perfect flavor profile. Learn more about this initiative here.
Coffee plants are at risk due to drastic climate changes, among many other factors. This is why we teamed up with World Coffee Research's effort to improve the crop's sustainability and the farmers' livelihood who grow it. The most efficient way to solve these issues for both businesses and farmers is through collaborative scientific research and development. Learn more about this initiative here.
All our coffees are sourced in GrainPro bags due to the quality of life benefits received by smallholder farmers, such as a 20 – 70% increase in revenue to standard market value. GrainPro products help reduce food losses and improve food quality by protecting agriculture commodities against insect infestation, mold growth, oxidation, and rancidity.

To further support the causes we love, we implemented an "add a donation" option at checkout. Right now, we are supporting One Tree Planted who aids in revitalizing forests in coffee-growing regions and Grounds for Health who's mission is to prevent cervical cancer in coffee communities. Learn more about these initiative here.
From the start and throughout this entire journey, we knew the cornerstone of our coffee program would be sustainability, quality, consistency, and freshness. As we continue to grow, we will build stronger ties with local communities and strengthen the economies and the ecosystems of the countries that our products originate.
