I am always looking for local food suppliers in Texas that stand out! Well… I found this fantastic Coffee Shop called Dominican Joe in Austin, TX! They are making a huge impact in the world and I think it’s worth talking about. Before I go into how amazing this coffee shop is lets get into the fun stuff! FREE COFFEE!!!
In celebration of this amazing supplier, he has gifted me with a bag of his wonderful Dominican Joe’s Organic Coffee as well as a Gift Card to use at the store. I will be choosing 2 winners for the following: 1 Dominican Joe Gift Card – 1 Dominican Joe Coffee. To enter to WIN do the following:
You MUST confirm your entry by email at EsteeEatz@Gmail.com and include ‘Dominican Joe‘ in the subject line and your name in the body.
Through a partnership with Makarios, an Austin-based non-based non-profit organization committed to educational and economic development in the Dominican Republic, your purchases make a tangible difference to people in that country. Once upon a time (current day) there were Dominican and Haitian families living in poverty in the Dominican Republic, whose children had little or no access to a good education. At the same time, on the same island, there were coffee farmers growing one heck of a good coffee bean but not getting paid enough to support their families. Enter Makarios – a non-profit dedicated to helping pull families out of poverty by providing their kids with a quality education – and an idea that would help support the school and the community of farmers. What if we bought this high grade coffee (now certified by the Rainforest Alliance) directly from the farmers using fair trade practices, imported it to the US, and sold it here in order to raise money for the school? Brilliant!
It really is possible to change the world by drinking coffee!
