Coffee And Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) practices
LIFT program was launched by Mercon in Nicaragua and has expanded to Guatemala, Honduras, Brazil, and Vietnam. LIFT features initiatives related to training and technical assistance for coffee farmers, farm business management, agricultural practices, socio-environmental practices, climate-smart agriculture, Rainforest Alliance standards compliance, and access to capital and risk-management tools. The LIFT program also contributes to the Seeds for Progress Foundation, which seeks to provide education access in coffee-growing communities.
Seventh Day Blend
Our Seventh Day Blend is an espresso blend of Southeast Asian and Latin American beans crafted specifically for cafes. And, of course, it makes great espresso with a medium body and buttery smoothness -- a treat for the weekend, or any day.
Tasting Notes: brown sugar, buttery, almond, light floral notes.
Roasted locally in Tacoma by Civic Roasters
Civic Roasters coffee is single origin and hand roasted in small batches to ensure excellent quality. They source from farms with the highest standards and with certifications like fair trade and organic whenever possible, and from co-ops that provide social programs for the farmers. They seek to dignify and empower workers at every step of the process.
A portion of their proceeds goes back to the community. In 2021, they are donating to Black Prisoners Caucus, The Loveland Foundation, and NW Immigrant Rights Project.
