Casa Grounds for Solidarity
When Casa volunteers sell Café Justo brand coffee, rural Mexican farmers and roasters earn a fair wage that allows them to remain in their homeland with a better quality of life. Last year the Casa community purchased 1,220 pounds of Café Justo organic, fair trade coffee. That volume supports a family of 10 for an entire year in Mexico. Visit our Casa Grounds for Solidarity Mission Statement for more information.
Through the Casa Grounds for Solidarity Ministry, volunteers “set up shop” here at the Franciscan Renewal Center to sell high-quality coffee from the Café Justo cooperative. The coffee is grown and/or roasted in Salvador Urbina, Mexico and Agua Prieta, Mexico. Each purchase is labeled with the date and name of the roaster, so every coffee lover knows exactly who they’ve supported with each cup. To learn more about who grows this delicious coffee, please click here.
Volunteers sell this delicious coffee to the Casa community on the 2nd full weekend of the month. We also educate our customers about the coffee, the farmers, migration issues and solidarity with Mexico’s agricultural workers. We welcome friendly, outgoing people who can sell, educate or organize.
