2023 Seeds Fund Recipient

Knowing that today’s young people will help find and create solutions to the challenges of tomorrow, ANEI received a Seeds grant to encourage youth involvement and understanding of the coffee business. 

With a goal to increase the active participation of young people by 50%, with at least 60% being women, ANEI trained 40 individuals in coffee and cocoa production, emphasizing organic farming. From planting to exporting, the workshops and trainings were designed to showcase the industry's versatility and potential while getting them interested in the business and value chain of organic agriculture.

Food, transportation, and educational support makes up 75% of the budget. For the project to be successful, it needs to be accessible. The grant provides logistical resources to guarantee the participation of young people.

  • Seeds Program

    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 $450,000 to Seeds projects
