my love for coffee (pt 2)

When a group of our leaders was at Catalyst last year, we came across a coffee from a company called Land of 1000 Hills.  They primarily serve coffee from Rwanda and they pay a premium rate for a premium product. They also engage in multiple social help projects to aid the nation as it seeks to recover from civil war. 

Our church serves coffee on Sunday morning so it made sense for us to begin to serve THIS coffee rather than the “other” coffee. Also, in my personal opinion, the other coffee tasted like swill. So it is fitting that their motto is “Drink Coffee. Do Good” because we are going to serve and drink coffee anyways. It may as well go to help people rather than exploit them. We are a church after all…

Recently our coffee account was assigned to a new employee named Christina.  I had a wonderful chat with her and I have enjoyed perusing her blog. I commend it to you if you are interested in seeing how coffee is benefiting the people of Rwanda.
