It’s no surprise we care about the planet. Every coffee we source is certified and roasted by local earth-minded roaster, Roast House Coffee. Protecting the precious resources and diverse ecosystems coffee comes from has been our top priority since day one.
Our commitment to the sustainability of the global coffee supply chain translates to our strong belief in supporting initiatives in our back yard. We’ve partnered with The Land’s Council to fuel the amazing volunteers and staff. They work to revitalize Inland Northwest forests, water, and wildlife through advocacy, education, effective, action, and community engagement.
The annual Reforest Spokane Day a couple weeks ago had a phenomenal turnout of over 250 people signed up! Here’s a recap from their newsletter:
“By 8:45 am, we had several groups of volunteers with shovels in hand and masks on, ready to plant. And volunteers did not stop arriving until 1:45 pm. College students, work volunteer groups, young kids, families… we had over 250 volunteers show up and show up in a big way. These dedicated volunteers planted every area that we had ready and got 1,500 native trees and shrubs in the ground. All while surviving the elements, getting covered in mud — and with a smile!”
