Giving Back

As a philanthropic coffee roasting company, our mission is to artisan roast exceptional coffees and then use our profits to fund what we like to call "works of compassion." We do that both here in our Cincinnati community as well as abroad. Although we started specifically with an orphanage in Nicaragua, as those kids have grown up and aged out, we have moved to supporting the wonderful causes below!

Supporting needs in coffee producing nations.

The Mercy Kids

Caring for many of the Mercy children is a full-time job for their parents, creating a profound lack of resources. Hunger is a daily reality. Unfortunately, work in this rural area is limited and parents who have children with a disability have few resources for child care. A huge percentage of Mercy kids have had access to no medical care. One of our major objectives is providing the therapy and medical care these kids need. Sometimes that requires expensive travel. Other times, it requires in home visits.

Kenya Kids Can

Kenya Kids Can is a ministry in the Rift Valley of Kenya. We partner with the local community to provide school lunches for children and construct solar powered computer centers to improve education and bring hope to needy students. Kenya Kids Can operates solar-powered computer centers in public primary schools that often don’t have electricity or running water.Kenya Kids Can is partnering with the local community to provide a simple hot lunch of maize and beans to primary school children. Locally this meal is known as githeri and it is a staple of the Kenyan diet.
