This is truly where the story of our brand began. Initially we wanted to answer the very simple question of “who exactly produces these gourmet coffee beans?” and “do they know how much I love these it?”. I got the answer to my question in Honduras. And lets just say that it wasn’t very long before the stories of the people and their lives overshadowed the coffee itself.
You see not only do we source 85 point (as a minimum standard) and up coffee, from individual farmers. But we made up our mind right then and there to dedicate the success of this brand toward the clear mission of giving back to the communities that we source from.
From this brand mission, Empowered Cup Coffee was born. We are very happy to share with you the causes (non profits) that we donate a sizable portion of our profits to.
Our donations from a single coffee bag convert directly to 1 day living wage for the regions of Honduras that we source our coffee from. These direct donations are made in effort to further grassroots medical care and education initiatives that provide clear communications and updates from the ground. If I can’t help in person, I’ll help through this platform just by choosing their gourmet coffee beans. And we hope you do.
