Mike and Mike from the 3-19 team spent a wonderful and fruitful few days in Seattle at the 2017 Specialty Coffee Association Global Coffee Expo trade show. We are thrilled to have been featured as a new and unmissable product from the show. Check out the article and the write-up:
It goes without saying that you could find good coffee on every corner of the expo. But 3–19 Coffee deserves a mention for their particular blend of coffee, community, and artwork.
When you buy 3–19 Coffee, it comes in a recyclable tin with a bamboo lid. And the label will have been designed by a local artist in San Francisco.
What’s more, they’ve paired up with Mayra Orellana-Powell of Royal Coffee to put a portion of the profits towards social projects in the communities they work with – from the US to the coffee origin. With the help of a Kickstarter campaign, they launched an art program in Santa Elena, Honduras. They also hold art workshops at a Youth Conference. In the past, this led to a community-designed mural painted by the town’s younger generation.
Because after all, coffee isn’t just coffee. It’s something that ties together a community.
