You and RG — changing lives and restoring communities through coffee.

By enjoying Redeeming Grounds coffee, you equip our partner growers with the resources to restore their highly distressed communities, places truly in the danger zone.  We then complement their work by supporting restorative projects in their communities.

What does this look like on the ground?  In 2015, Redeeming Grounds Partner Coffee Growers in Colombia helped transition approximately 10 acres from coca (cocaine) to coffee cultivation.  Those acres would have produced approximately 322 kilos of cocaine paste, which, when processed, has an estimated street value of $16.2 million.

So enjoy your RG brew and turn coffee expense to life-changing giving!
