Doing Good by Drinking Well

In association with Thanksgiving Coffee company, I am pleased to announce that GlobalGiving Coffee is now available from Indonesia, Uganda, and Nicaragua.

In each case, $2 from the purchase of each bag goes to a GlobalGiving project in the country where the beans are picked. Naturally, the coffee is free trade and organic.

Here is the blurb for the Indonesia coffee:

The coffee is grown in the mountains just above Banda Aceh. "Gayo Mountain" has earthy and musty notes with overlays of oak and burnt sugars. $2.00 from the sale of each package will be donated directly to the "Home for 100 Banda Aceh Orphans" project which is providing food, education, and permanent shelter for 100 orphans in tsunami-ravaged Banda Aceh, Indonesia.

You can order your coffee here. Let me know what you think.
