Our Blue & White blend helps a different nonprofit every month.
One of the many ways Nate’s Coffee gives back to the community is through our Blue & White Charity Blend. This process provides exposure of twelve different organizations a year to the Nate’s Coffee community, as well as a fundraising opportunity. A medium-dark blend of Ethiopia and Latin American coffees, Nate’s Blue & White Charity Blend has hints of chocolate-covered berries.
$1 from each bag sold in September goes to Coffee Kids, which creates economic opportunities for young farmers who want to continue farming coffee in their communities. The coffee industry needs the next generation of farmers to be enthusiastic, profitable and well-trained so that small roasters like Nate’s Coffee can continue to provide you with awesome brew.
This organization’s Rural Business Workshops provide business skills, funding, and mentoring to empower their students to turn coffee farming into a business that provides a good life for their families. With these tools, not only are young farmers optimizing their farms, they are starting side businesses that provide steady, year-round incomes.
Celebrate National Coffee Day on September 29th with a cup or pound of Blue & White Charity Blend at Nate’s on National to benefit Coffee Kids!
One pound (16oz.) bags of Blue & White Blend are available at Nate’s on National, North Lime Coffee & Donuts locations, Kentucky For Kentucky, Bodega, Good Foods Co-op and at natescoffee.com.
