Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now we have #GivingTuesday. A global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when good people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
A charity close to our caffeinated hearts is Coffee Kids, an organization that provides training, mentorship, and seed capital to help young farmers see themselves as entrepreneurs, develop the skills to launch their own businesses, and connect to the global coffee industry.
On December 3, 2019, Siena Coffee will donate 10% of all sales that day to CoffeeKids and help #thefutureofcoffee thrive.

If only it were that easy!
There’s a significant amount of detailed work that goes into producing a high-quality micro-lot specialty coffee. Everything from fertilizers to the amount of shade, and from the altitude to the variety of crops that are planted within the micro-lots have an effect on the quality of the coffee. But the effort doesn’t stop once you’ve decided what to plant where and with what. To produce a specialty bean, the attention to detail must continue throughout the entire process – and there are three quality control points that can really make a difference to the final cup.
