Coffee for a social good

with one comment

The Eldest sent me a note today about the Thanksgiving Coffee Company:

Founded in 1972 by Joan and Paul Katzeff, Thanksgiving Coffee has long been a pioneer in transforming the coffee business. Our philosophy blends business and politics; our goal is to be a force for change in support of social and economic justice, and environmental sustainability.

Our commitment to total quality imagines trading relationships that empower farmers to produce incredible coffee, and also connects coffee drinkers with the knowledge that they can change the world through their coffee purchases. Thus, our site serves as a wealth of information on topics such as shade grown coffee, fair trade coffee, organic farming, as well as being a great place to learn about and buy our coffee.

The note from The Eldest included comments by a friend:

I recommend buying from A Just Cup from Thanksgiving Coffee Company. They offer a Mirembe Kawomera dark roast blend from Uganda. [You can also specify Light Roast when you order. – LG] From the website: “A sweet, nutty coffee from Uganda with notes of pecan and nutmeg, grown by an amazing and unique cooperative consisting of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian coffee farmers.” …  I’m a coffee snob, and do not like to waste my caffeine intake on low-quality. This is the best coffee that I’ve had.
