Our Blue & White Charity 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.

The Children’s Charity Fund of the Bluegrass was founded in 1981 to help provide needed funds for the Child Development Center of the Bluegrass, an agency that provides a full range of services for children from birth to five years of age who have disabilities. They serve a number of children’s charities in and around Lexington, and this month Nate’s Coffee will donate at least one dollar for every pound of Blue & White Charity Blend sold. 

One pound (16oz.) bags of Blue & White Blend are available at North Lime Coffee & Donuts locations and at natescoffee.com.
