2022 Seeds Fund Recipient
Mokha Story was awarded a 2022 Seeds grant to construct a rainwater-collecting tank. The farm, located in Yemen’s notoriously arid Haraz mountains, recently scaled up its operations by planting 800 Ja'adi-variety coffee seedlings. The new surface water well will help irrigate the trees, increasing the production of coffee, creating at least three new jobs, and enabling Mokha Story to grow.
Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $280,000 to Seeds projects.
