In the next few weeks, we have two big events coming up.
First – we are officially starting work on our Colombian Roast. We will be in Colombia at the end of the month to visit the school and orphanage that the proceeds from our sales will support, as well as meet with coffee farmers and bring back our first samples of Colombian grown beans.
And, we’re finalizing our very first Purpose Coffee Co. funded project in Thailand.
We’re pretty excited.
With these events in mind, our Board of Directors met this week to further define and refine our Purpose and how we will use our proceeds.
Right now, we are in varying stages of developing roasts from Southeast Asia, South America, Central America, and Africa. And, as it would happen to work out, we also have relationships with schools, organizations, orphanages, and churches in those same regions.
We’re asking the leaders at those organizations to let us know about much needed projects that contribute to the wellness of the children that they serve. Projects that focus on education, nutrition, access to clean water, health, fighting human trafficking – and, in general, helping kids be kids with a chance at a brighter future. We are committed to finding projects that make a real impact, with a focus on sustainability.
So, we’ve set it up that when you order coffee, a t-shirt, a coffee mug, or a French press, you’ll be able to decide which region you’d like the proceeds from your purchase to benefit. Have a heart for Africa? A passion for the kids in Southeast Asia? Or a desire to make a difference in South or Central America? Just choose the region from the “Select a Project” drop down menu.
We can’t wait to share with you our upcoming projects and the impact that your Purpose Coffee purchases will have around the world. Stay tuned for more info!
