About us

There are many organizations tackling some of the tough challenges that face us around the world.  Funding for them can be a stumbling block, though, and so it's our mission to help.

We source good coffee from good people and offer it to you, so that you can appreciate a tasty brew while supporting worthy causes.  At least 10% of proceeds from every package shipped to you is donated to the cause you've chosen to support.

We work cooperatively with a growing network of roasters around the world.  You can expect high-quality coffee from artisans who have established ethical relationships with the farmers who provide them with beans to roast.  Coffee is roasted by experts local to you, with their roastery credited on the packages they prepare.  You'll be able to see who roasted your beans and where they came from.

Our Advisory Board members volunteer their time, bringing their diverse experience to bear on steering our efforts and doing good in the world as we grow.  You can read about them, below.
