DIRECT SUPPORT FOR COFFEE FARMERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
Throughout the world, coffee and landmines overlap. From countries as diverse as Ethiopia, the "birthplace of coffee," to Colombia, landmines impact the lives of coffee workers, their families and their communities. The Coffeelands Trust is a vehicle for coffee corporations to give something back to the farmers who sometimes risk their lives to pick the crop to support their families.
