Coffee Detective supports and contributes to Coffee Kids.

support coffee kids

Coffee Kids is a non-profit organization devoted to helping coffee-farming families improve their quality of life.

There are over 125 million people worldwide who are dependent on coffee as their sole source of income.

Unfortunately, the money they make is often not enough to support them, and their families live in poverty.

Since 1988 Coffee Kids has been working to help these coffee workers, and their children.

Coffee Kids works with partners to create programs in microcredit and economic diversification, health awareness, education and training, and food security.

When you pour that next cup of coffee, it’s worth thinking about the manual labor that went into growing the trees, picking the cherries, processing the beans and getting them into your home.

We all love our coffee, but it comes to us at a cost that is not reflected in the price we pay.

125 million people work to get that coffee into our mugs. And they don’t earn enough to feed, educate and support their own children.

That’s why Coffee Detective makes a monthly donation to Coffee Kids.
