Gifts that Keep Giving: Coffee

Who wouldn’t say no to a bag or two or even a year’s supply of coffee? Check out your local Starbucks or Coffee Bean for some limited edition fair-trade coffee bags. If you’re feeling more adventurous/generous however, check out Kopur Coffee’s website and give a special someone a 4-12 month coffee subscription. By doing so, they’ll get a variety of exotic coffees from Papua New Guinea, Honduras, Mexico and Ethiopia, and you’ll help provide a small-time coffee grower and his family with sustainable income.

Drink with Purpose

What happens when you combine the Melanesian word for coffee, Kopi, and the word purpose? You get Kopur, a brand new company “passionate about coffee” and “committed to using it to help alleviate poverty around the globe.” Kopur’s commitment to alleviating poverty is displayed in its promise to donate $2.50 from each bag of coffee purchased from its online store to a not-for profit of their customer’s choice. Madan Estate coffee from Papua New Guinea and Ethiopian Yirgacheffee are just two examples of the selection of the ethnically diverse selection Kopur’s online store offers. In addition to the option of purchasing individual bags of coffee, Kopur also offers its customers with an ingenious 4-12 month “Kopur-licious” subscription option that allows customers to “buy once, and sip for months.” Oh and did we mention that it includes free shipping?
