Socially Responsible and Sustainable Coffee
Nearly a decade ago, Timothy’s began supporting the La Vereda project with the purchase of approximately 77,000 lbs. of coffee beans. This year, due to consumer demand, Timothy’s plans to purchase 508,000 lbs. – providing the Embera-Chami community with a significant increase in income.
Not only is Timothy’s a proud supporter of the La Vereda Partnership Project, we are also committed to serving your best cup of the day!
International Women's Coffee Alliance
Contribute to valuable social change and protect the environment through your enjoyment of our new Women In Coffee Partnership Blend. Purchased with the assistance of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance, this blend combines coffee from Costa Rican plantations operated by women. Partial proceeds help support coffee-growing communities through improvements in the towns where these women live and work. Timothy’s is proud to offer these exceptional coffees as part of our Partnership Coffee Program, which are available in distinctive green coffee bags – only at Timothy’s World Coffee.
