Did you know that 14 of the 19 coffees La Terza currently offers are from Central and South America?
It’s always been in our DNA to work closely with coffee producers and push towards a living wage for all, alleviating poverty through specialty coffee.
Several of our single-origins are from countries being directly affected by poverty, violence, and corruption, resulting in individuals being displaced from their homes and families… including Honduras.
In an effort to honor the hands that grow the coffee we enjoy each day, we want to do something about the issues faced by our friends from Central America, and we invite you to join us.
For a limited time, all profits from our retail sales of this direct-trade, Honduran coffee will fund projects that allow us to address issues at both ends… offering support to one of the root causes of the problem and the resulting crises taking place closer to home.
How it Works:
La Terza will donate 100% of the profits from our Honduran coffee to partner organizations: groups of great people working in Honduras, at the border, and closer to home here in Ohio.
Who are Your Partners?
- In Honduras, we’ve selected two amazing change-makers, dedicated to creating jobs and self-sufficiency in their communities. We’re also going to begin a Coffee/Business course in Honduras soon, teaching individuals how to become successful in the coffee industry. You can read more about Finca San Isidro and IVO Cafe on our Social Responsibility page.
- We’ve carefully selected two non-profits that are already on the ground doing great work. By donating to Preemptive Love Coalition and the Office of Social Justice, we’re supporting efforts at the US/Mexico border to love on those who need immediate resources, and creating lasting change through advocacy and volunteer mobilization. You can read more about these organizations on our Social Responsibility page.
- Here in Ohio, we’re working with two amazing non-profits that work with immigrants and refugees resettling in our communities, providing them with the services they need to become self-sufficient, contributing citizens who can pursue a better way of life for their families. Check out more about CRIS and Su Casa on our Social Responsibility page.
What’s the story behind this coffee?
Since 1975, the Duke Family’s love and care for their coffee plantation has allowed them to cultivate eco-friendly, specialty coffee. Their farm, “San Isidro,” is the home of more than 180 species of orchids, birds (including hummingbirds), and butterflies in Copán Ruinas, Honduras.
For the past 5 years, the farm has transitioned from the production of conventional coffee to specialty coffee and began a pre-selection process for the Alliance For Coffee Excellence’s “Cup of Excellence”- the most prestigious competition and award for high-quality coffees.
The empowerment of women has been a key piece to achieve their transformation. The women of Farm San Isidro are an integral part of the productive process: from the collection of coffee and quality control to the manual selection of coffee exportation.
“The passion and commitment of our women allows us to offer world-class coffee. We believe that through the women of Farm San Isidro, we will inspire future generations to cultivate a love for the land and a passion for the production of specialty coffee.”– Katia Duke, Farm Owner
