Subscribe and save. We’ve all heard it. Cleaning supplies, copy paper, toiletries… Enter: Coffee. If you don’t currently have a coffee subscription, you should give it a try. We have a feeling you’ll love it. Here’s why:
1. Set it and Forget it
This is the most fun part. You know you’re going to drink coffee. You know it’s going to run out. You know you LOVE coffee. Why not extend a helping hand to your future self? Customize your coffee shipments to arrive every week; every two weeks; every four weeks or every six weeks.
And if for some reason you need to change your order frequency, or get a different coffee, you can do that, too. Just sign-in online and change your coffee subscription. Or give us a call.
2. You Get the Coffee You Want
Experienced online coffee shoppers will already know this. When you purchase coffee directly from a roastery, you are likely getting some of the freshest coffee that company puts out. It’s hard to get that level of freshness at a grocery store. You often don’t get it from second-party web vendors.
When you purchase coffee directly from a roastery, it’s as though you stopped in to the production facility, took a whiff of coffee-charged air, and said, “give me your freshest coffees.”
Freshly roasted coffee greatly impacts cup quality. You like drinking coffee that’s been roasted within the past few weeks. (You also like it when it’s been freshly ground, so try to grind your beans right before brewing :)
With our coffee subscription service, you can choose from a variety of roast styles, coffee origins, and blends to get the exact coffee YOU like at its peak freshness point. You can also choose from a variety of bag sizes. When was the last time you bought a five-pound bag of freshly roasted fair trade, organic coffee at the grocery store? Not gonna happen.
3. It’s True. This Coffee Subscription Will Save You Money
Customers who’ve joined our Cafe Campesino mailing list know that we regularly send out discounts for certain coffees throughout the year. But let’s say you REALLY love Mexico, Chiapas, coffee, and we haven’t offered a discount on it in a long time. A subscription to that coffee will get you a 15 percent discount every time it ships. If you’re a coffee drinker, you’re going to buy coffee somewhere. Why not get exactly what you want at a 15 percent discount?
4. You’ll get Great Customer Service
We really want you to be happy with your purchase. If something goes wrong with your shipment or you are not satisfied with your order, you can contact us. You don’t have to fill out a form, or search for a “help link” in our web navigation. Send us an email or give us a call- 888-532-4728. We will make it right.
5. You Can be Certain you’re contributing to the Greater Good
We probably don’t stay this enough: Our supply chain is one the best there is in specialty coffee. You are not only treating farmers with dignity and respect when you purchase coffee through this supply chain, but you are also investing in people who are care deeply about their communities.
All of our coffees are certified organic and fair trade, which generates additional revenue for farmer groups. All of our trading relationships are long-term, so producers can count on us to return year-after-year. All of our coffee contracts are made public, so other coffee companies will know that business transparency can be a norm.
But in addition to all of that, every pound of coffee you purchase also helps fund farmer-led development projects at origin. Through our importer, Cooperative Coffees, we allocate three cents of every pound purchased toward an Impact Fund that directly supports farmer-led development projects.
For example, in 2018, we contributed nearly $4,000 to support farmer-led initiatives at coffee origin. Those projects included a reforestation project with the Norandino cooperative in Northern Peru; the establishment of localized farmer training sites with the Maya Vinic cooperative in Chiapas, Mexico; and a soil sampling and organic training initiative with the Fondo Paez cooperative of Cauca, Colombia.
In addition to supporting small-scale producers around the world, your purchase of Cafe Campesino coffee also supports a thriving small business in rural America. Some 17,000 people live in and around Americus, Georgia, a small town nestled in rural farm lands about 130 miles southwest of Atlanta. Cafe Campesino has operated from Americus for 21 years and now employs 20 people locally. It is the only certified B Corp in Sumter County, Georgia, and (last we checked) Georgia’s only certified B Corp south of metro-Atlanta.
Your purchases can have a cascading effect around the world. Why not make it a positive one?
