Kai Coffee is a fair trade and ethically sourced coffee. They have a purpose and passion to bring kids out of poverty. Kai Coffee donates 100% of its net profit to non-profit organizations dedicated to helping children in need.
Kai Coffee is not just a regular brew, it’s coffee with a story.
Hear what the founder Sean Naus has to say about the vision in today’s interview:
What is Kai Coffee doing that is different?
Kai Coffee was started as an experiment to create a business around the second largest traded commodity in the world and to use the funds to rescue orphans in Africa. Built into the DNA of Kai Coffee is a passion for excellent coffee and care and concern for global issues. This has led us to import, roast, and sell ONLY 100% fair trade and 100% organic coffee’s. What sets Kai apart is not only the excellence of each cup, but the story behind each cup. We believe that we are doing our part in supporting the Global Village. Promoting fair trade means that we stand for fair wages for local famers in developing nations. It means that we are working to end child slavery in developing nations, and though at this point we are not directly connected with the farms
What type of Injustice does Kai Coffee fight for and how?
Child Slavery in the production and distribution of coffee (for the roasting side). We are also fighting to relieve poverty by paying for an orphanage in Uganda which currently has 15 boys rescued off the street. Our long term goal is to set up several of these orphanages across Africa.
What makes Kai Coffee unique?
We roast our own coffee. We believe that freshly roasted coffee is the best coffee. We believe that every coffee bean has a perfect roasting profile that brings out the beauty of that particular bean. These passions lead us to use innovative roasting techniques which ensure the best possible taste from the best beans in the world, roasted to order
What are you hoping to accomplish with Kai Coffee?
We are working to establish a brand that is known for quality and excellence coupled with a passion for world issues. Practically this means launching a chain of coffee shops around the world that promote these values and donate their profits to the work in Africa.
How is Kai Coffee produced and where?
Fair trade. Sumatra, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, East Timor.
