for a coffee community, a coffee washing station is the difference between poverty and profit.
It is the difference between a life of survival and a life of OPPORTUNITY, A life of HOPE, A life of LEGACY.
But this wasn't our idea. It was the idea of our farmers.
As we visited the homes of our families, farmer after farmer, without exception, told us that their community's greatest need was a coffee washing station. And we quickly realized that it was our job to start listening.
With access to a coffee washing station, our farmers' income will increase up to ten times what it is now.
With this increase, they will be able to afford food for their families, access to healthcare, and education for their children.
additionally, this coffee washing station will employ 180 people in the community per year.
Between the engineers, managers, accountants, sorters, washers, packers, and cleaners, this washing station will provide a variety of new employment opportunities to a community that weren't previously possible.
