August is National Coffee Month!
We love the month of August as much as the next person. After all, it’s still summer and a good excuse to eat our weight in ice cream and snow cones thanks to the crazy heat we’ve had. If you didn’t know, we’re in the Dallas area, where it’s currently 105 degrees, but feels more like a hot yoga class inside a volcano.
Extreme heat aside, we also love that August is National Coffee Month. And, if you’re wondering, wasn’t there a coffee holiday in July, well, you’d be right. July 26th was National Coffee Milkshake Day. And, looking ahead, National Coffee Day is next month, on September 29th.
Side Note: There’s a National Coffee themed day in every single month of the year! Although, if you want to get technical, March is actually National Caffeine Awareness Month, but we’re pretty sure coffee checks out.
All of that to say, while coffee is celebrated all year long, and by most of us first thing in the morning, August lays claim to all 31-days. So, we thought we’d celebrate this vibrant month by celebrating our amazing coffee-loving brand partner, Gobena.
If you have ever tried Gobena coffee then you understand the hype of this high quality brand. In fact, their raw coffee beans represent the world’s best. They purchase the top 10% of specialty Arabica, green coffee beans available and then small batch roast their coffee daily. So in the end, you, the coffee lover, get the freshest, best tasting coffee possible!
However, there is a lot more to this beloved brand than just their premium coffee.
If you haven’t heard how this coffee came to be, we promise, you’re in for a real treat! From an abandoned newborn baby found by a plantain farmer to a company who gives all of their profits to orphans, you’ll never think of Gobena as just a cup of coffee again.
Watch this short video—it’s less than 5-minutes—and prepare to be inspired.
Through their partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, Gobena gives back 100% of their profits to care for orphans and vulnerable children—which means every purchase YOU make is helping change a life!
They also supports The Forgotten Initiative by helping them use the coffee to raise money to mobilize and equip the body of Christ to make a difference in the lives of agency workers, foster parents, vulnerable adults, and children through service projects, mentoring, and family support initiatives.
Finally, Gobena Coffee is also proud to partner with Fair Trade USA, a 501 non-profit organization, to ensure coffee farmers are paid a fair wage for their coffee.
