The coffees in this blend were sourced from historically underrepresented coffee growers. Though they originate from all different parts of the world, they share a similar story. The coffee is typically grown on small plots of land held in the family as means to survive economically.
Royal Coffee has been our partner in finding these "relationship coffees" and is helping in underwriting some of the costs of this project so that we can raise money for local non-profits.
This quarter’s Give Back recipient is the San Francisco Zen Center.
Farley’s connection to the San Francisco Zen Center runs through our founder, Roger Hillyard. After 22 years of running Farley's (and living upstairs), it was time to retire (and move!). He passed on the business to his son and set out on his next adventure as a Zen practitioner
Though this connection, we started roasting a special, fair trade and organic blend that is served at all three centers for residents and guests. Over the years we have cultivated an appreciation for Zen's intentional way of life and mission to relieve the suffering of all beings.
For every bag of Gift Back Blend sold, $5 is donated to the San Francisco Zen Center.
