Make a Difference for a Penny a Pound™
In collaboration with Coffeelands Foundation, The Coffee Trust offers a simple means for coffee roasters to add one cent per pound to their green coffee purchases and at the same time support Roya Recovery, Economic Diversification, Food Sovereignty, Education, and Health Care programs at origin. Your contribution is 100% tax deductible and you may opt in or opt out at any time. Please contact us for more information.
Host a Fundraiser
Host an event or fundraiser in your store to support projects that promote self-reliance for coffee producers and their families. Roya Recovery (recuperation from the coffee rust fungus), Women's Savings & Micro-Credit to add family income, Food Sovereignty so farmers can feed their families 12 months every year, Health Projects to halt easily preventable, debilitating diseases, and Education so kids can go to school.
Sell Chajulense Weavings
Available Wholesale and Retail
Offer these beautiful woven items to your customers while raising money for Chajulense de Mujeres. These pieces are woven by the women of Chajul, Guatemala and the money they raise from sales helps them to feed their families, have access to health care, and gain independence from coffee as their sole source of income. These weavings can now be delivered right to your door. You can display these weavings alongside print materials describing the programs customers are supporting by making a purchase. All contributors to The Coffee Trust receive 10% off their orders.
Serve and Sell Coffee from San Gaspar Chajul
Purchase green or roasted Chajulense coffee to serve and sell to your customers while connecting them with the farmers behind their cup. We will help facilitate the connection to purchase the beans (subject to availability) and can provide informational graphics about The Coffee Trust and our programming for you to display.
