You should buy coffee you ENJOY DRINKING, and not restrict yourself to just coffees that align with your morals. This is an easy way to do both. Turn any coffee into a Fair Trade, Organic, Bird Friendly or UTZ participating purchase by adding a manual donation.
Not sure how much to donate? We recommend $1.00 (1 item) per pound of coffee you buy, but you can choose any amount you want.
How Much of the Donation is Sent?
100% of your donation is sent to the organization you choose. This is despite us losing about 3% on processing fees and costing administrative time on our end.
In fact, we'll add 10% to our donation so that every $1.00 you choose to donate results in $1.10 being contributed to these organizations (and helps offset their inefficiencies).
We think it's stupid that you can't buy anything except Costa Rican coffee because that's the only Rainforest Alliance certified coffee that we carry. Or that you can't buy coffee from Burundi because we couldn't source it Organic or Fair Trade certified.
Don't trust us?
We only thought this would be a convenient way to participate in these programs. We'd love it if you made a direct donation to these organizations instead!
