All great coffee starts with great relationships, and our 2012 Anniversary Blend is no exception. To honor our coffee-growing partners, we're contributing 5% of the proceeds* to help establish reliable clean water access for the community of the Korona Plantation in Papua New Guinea.
Access to clean water is a great need in the highlands of Papua New Guinea where most women must walk long distances, often to and from rivers, to collect water. These proceeds will help build catchment water tanks (which collect and store large amounts of rainwater, a clean source of water) in a centrally-located and accessible spot within the community.
To craft a great cup, we matched Korona's Rainforest Alliance-certified coffee with the best, brightest and most complementary beans from Burundi Kirimiro and Colombia Antioquia Finca Santa Barbara. Anniversary Blend 2012 is rich, vibrant and aromatic.
We think this blend offers great tribute to our founding 46 years ago and we hope you'll join us in celebrating.
* 5% of proceeds, up to $25,000
