It’s international coffee weekend! Help us celebrate coffee’s true heroes: the farmers.

What’s the most you have spent on coffee before? I once spent $28 on Kona coffee beans in Maui.
Contrastingly, I’m shocked to learn that most Latin American farmers, of crops including coffee, live below $2 a day and will always be poor with their methods of subsistence farming.
Non-profit Pontis Nicaragua works with farm families to transform subsistence farms to enterprise farms. Enterprise farms are based on both solid agricultural and business practices. They are less chemical-dependent and use modern practices to produce yields 30-100% higher. The farms are run with ﬁnancial discipline and spread risk over multiple crops.
How many times have you participated in the random act of kindness? Next time, instead of buying a cup of coffee for that stranger behind you in the Starbucks drive thru, consider donating to Pontis and help a family rise out of poverty, and join us in building small farms that provide for generations.
