FIXING CLIMATE F*CKERY & ANNOUNCING 1% FOR THE PLANET

We’re roasters not mathematicians but know bad stats when we see them. Like the finding from IUCN Red List of Threatened Species that, due to climate change, at least 60% of coffee species are at risk of disappearing. And, from the 2016 report by The Climate Institute, that coffee production could be cut in half by 2050. Then there’s this - only 3% of philanthropy goes to environmental causes. Of that, only 5% comes from corporations.
