In honour of Pride, 100% of the proceeds from these bags will be donated to the End of the Rainbow Foundation, whose mission is to improve socio-economic conditions for people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities or expressions (SOGIE) by providing innovative education, support programs, and research.
They're a fantastic volunteer-led organization and we're thrilled to support them.
We're also doing a Pride Donut with our sister company Hoopla Donuts. We're aiming to raise $3000 between the coffee and donuts sales.
The funds will be used for their Calgary Rainbow Railroad Station initiative.
While with our R2, R3, and Limited Release coffees you are ordering a specific origin, our approach to the R1 coffees is a little different. The coffee is still single-origin, sourced direct from individual farms and co-ops, and follows the same rigorous quality standards we obsess over, but we roast all our R1 coffees for a consistent flavour profile. We select sweet coffees that are approachable, chocolatey, nutty, and with lower acidity. These are what you would expect from a classic coffee, but elevated. Look for offerings from Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala (to name a few).
