Get Involved With Amavida Coffee

At Amavida Coffee our goals is to create positive, lasting impact in the lives of coffee producers, in our communities and the environment. Hence, we provide opportunities for businesses and consumers to get involved and make every purchase matter.

Here is how you can be a part of this sustainability initiative:

With Producers

Amavida Coffee makes it easy for you to get involved by supporting the work of On the Ground Global to strengthen the economic and social development of farmers all over the world. You can make an impact by collaborating with other OTG partners to fund projects focusing on clean water, education, food security, gender justice and more. By purchasing our specialty coffees from Mexico and the Democratic Republic of Congo, donations are made to support the work of Project Chiapas and Project Congo.

We encourage our partners and coffee-enthusiast friends, to travel to the countries of origin. Take the opportunity to visit the local farmers and their cooperatives to learn firsthand how we can make a real and significant difference in their lives. Such opportunities present you with a chance to meet local families, share meals and exchange information face-to-face. To be part of this, contact us at outreach@amavida.com for details of upcoming trips or delegations.

In Communities

At Amavida Coffee, we understand that the health and strength of coffee producing communities are integral to our success, as is the well-being of our local community. We are driven by a passion to give back to our communities to make the world a better place. Through our “Love Life” Interfaith Fundraising Program, we provide an opportunity for faith-based organizations to make a difference through their purchases by offering fairly traded coffee, tea, cocoa, and chocolate at wholesale pricing. Contact us for ideas about how to get started, product suggestions and pricing related to Amavida Coffee’s “Love Life” Interfaith Fundraising or other community programs.

Through volunteering and charitable giving, we can work together to support sustainable communities globally. You can participate in the Winter Solstice Run (2016), an empowering and adventurous run with a variety of distance options that raises funds to support peace and justice for the women and communities of the Democratic Republic of Congo. To learn more, log on to www.wintersolsticerun.org and register.

For Environment

We advocate for environmentally friendly practices to help manage waste, conserve water, use energy efficiently, protect water quality, reduce harmful emissions and preserve biodiversity. Protecting the environment benefits each and every one of us. Hence, we should be committed to preserving the Earth’s resources so that it can benefit the future generations too.

Join our cause to safeguard the environment by signing up through www.arcadiapower.com/amavida to support Arcadia Power’s clean and renewable energy initiative. Arcadia Power will make a $30 donation to support On the Ground Global’s Project Chiapas, plus a $20 account credit off their bill per every customer that signs up.

Promoting the arts, education, social entrepreneurship and collective action with local schools and our fellow merchants and community members can be powerful force for good too.

For us, the business is not about the sale, but the relationships made and the lives affected.
