Update: Thank you everyone for your support. Together we have raised over $5,000 for Bukonzo Joint. This means they are able to repair the damage to their facility as well as replace the equipment they lost in the flooding.
We have received great feedback for the single origin coffee Mountains of the Moon we released for this initiative, and we will be bringing it back in future small batch series. Stay tuned!
One of our coffee producers, Bukonzo Joint Cooperative Union in Uganda have experienced severe flooding in May, 2020. As a result, houses, crops, and milling equipment have been washed out.
Salt Spring Coffee donated $2,700 for immediate relief, and we are now raising funds to help rebuild their facilities by releasing a small batch, single-origin coffee sourced exclusively from Bukonzo Joint.
100% of the profit will be donated to Bukonzo Joint.
