Did You Know?

You Support Displaced
Youth With Every Coffee Purchase

Supporting TCCI’s Mission Couldn’t Be Easier!

Enjoy fine specialty coffee, delivered to your door, knowing that your purchase is also creating opportunities for children, youth, and families with critical needs in communities along the Texas Gulf Coast, Mexico, and Central America. The coffee you’ll fall in love with is grown and harvested on small, family farms by displaced youth working to overcome adversity. It’s then shipped to Texas and prepared by youth who are learning work skills on a path to independence. All of this is possible through Coffee Artisan Friendship Exchange, a social-entrepreneurial coffee company created by TCCI.
