Act For All Coffee: Solidarity Blend

$19.00
|12 oz.
A blend of Brazilian peaberry offering bright but creamy flavors of dark chocolate and apricot jam, and Congolese bourbon contributing sweet, fruity flavors like yellow cherry and caramel apple.

We launched Act for All Coffee to make a meaningful impact on communities and advocate for equal rights and equitable opportunities for all. For every Act for All Coffee, we’ll donate $2 to a social justice cause of the roaster’s choosing. Joe Coffee’s Solidarity Blend will benefit the Emergency Release Fund.

    Roaster’s Notes
    The coffee includes 2 components: the Brazil Veloso Peaberry is sourced collaboratively with one of our biggest partners, the Veloso family. The Congo Umoja is purchased through a supply stream explicitly aimed at contributing to the Congolese peace movement. Umoja means ‘Solidarity’ in Swahili. We stand in solidarity with the communities that make this blend possible, and we stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable to violence and discrimination.

    A Note from Our Roaster

    “For starters, the two components that make up this blend are true indicators of the relationships we are invested in as a company, as well as the learning journey we’ve undertaken through defining our sourcing values. Through the partnership we have with the Veloso family in Brazil, with whom we have been working for just over one year, we have come to understand the mechanics of the global coffee trade. We’ve also learned how to appreciate intentional sustainability that considers economics and farmer livelihood as well as wildlife. Through getting to know the logistics partners responsible for the Congo Umoja, we learned more about the role of coffee within Congo. It’s part of our larger effort to understand our role in every supply stream where we work, in order to benefit others wherever possible. Learning about the role of coffee in Africa, by extension, through this purchase, showed us the importance of adequately teaching ourselves, our staff, and our community about the context behind our industry’s history and responsibility.”

    This Coffee’s Cause

    Emergency Release Fund
    New York, NY
    “We chose the Emergency Release Fund as a way to support a grassroots effort to aid one of our community’s most vulnerable populations. We know that trans folks are subject to violence at much higher rates than other populations, and they are also often disproportionately targeted by police and subject to increased violence and mistreatment throughout the legal system. Emergency Release Fund works to help pay bail for eligible trans folks in NYC jails and supports their release while awaiting trial.”
