Working with participating coffee importers and brokers the Coffeelands Foundation has developed a simple and effective program for coffee roasters that can have a profound impact on the lives of coffee growers and their communities.
Coffee buyers and roasters will be able to make donations of one penny per pound on each pound of green coffee purchased. The resulting invoice will reflect the quoted price of the green coffee and there will be a line item for the Coffeelands Foundation equivalent to one penny for each pound of coffee purchased. The donation is tax-deductible. Importers will collect the penny a pound through the payment of the invoice and pass that money on to the Coffeelands Foundation quarterly.
