Global Partnerships

Donation to support microfinance projects


Description

We have partnered with Global Partnerships to bring you Opportunity Blend, a rich and aromatic combination of Central and South American beans. Global Partnerships is dedicated to expanding opportunity for people living in poverty through the support of microfinance (providing financial services to the poor) in Latin America and Africa. Global Partnerships will receive 15% of the sales price from every bag of Opportunity Blend coffee sold to help borrowers start businesses, feed their families, send their children to school and access basic health care.

Global Partnerships requests names and mailing addresses for persons that order the Opportunity Blend. Grounds for Change will provide Global Partnerships with this information along with our annual donation. We only provide this information for those persons who order the Opportunity Blend and not for any of our other customers. This agreement is indefinite in length and guarantees no minimum contribution.

Our Coffee

Our coffee is Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard, Organic Certified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture and grown in shaded conditions by small farmer cooperatives. In addition, the complete carbon footprint (from crop to cup) for our coffee has been offset with tree planting, which qualifies it as a CarbonFree Certified product by CarbonFund.org. All of our coffee is roasted to order and shipped fresh daily. We package in air-tight, foil-lined bags with one-way degassing valves to preserve freshness.
