Zapatista Coffee Beans 500g
How good would it be if your fresh morning coffee didn’t just set you up for the day – but also set up a whole community for a better way of life? Well, with Cafe Rebelde Zapatista coffee from Essential, you really can make a difference. Cafe Rebelde is sourced directly from the farming communities in Chiapas, South East Mexico. The indigenous people of the area have been farming the land since 2000 and produce such a fine product that they have created an industry that successfully supports several villages and ensures the community is self-sufficient and able to work and live on the land. Without this industry, the people would be forced into the slums and a life of hardship and poverty. For every 1 kg of coffee Essential sells, Cafe Libertad – the brand owner – donates €0.45 to Kiptik, a “UK-based solidarity group who have been working on a series of projects in the autonomous communities of Chiapas in South East Mexico, since May 2000. The aim of KIPTIK is to support the Zapatista struggle directly through the construction of drinking water systems, ecological stoves, health and mural projects” (kiptik.org).
