The dream behind Banshee Coffee has always been more than just great coffee.
We have set out to make a global impact with every bag of coffee we sell. Like most coffee companies, we care deeply about the quality and ethics behind the coffee we use. We make sure to ethically source all of our single origin coffee from traceable farms and pay a fair market price that ensures the farmers and their employees receive fair wages.
We didn’t stop there, however.
From the beginning, we have been committed to giving away 10% of our total net income to a few non-profits in countries we source from, as well as our own community. Our goal to continue to increase giving and the number of non-profits we partner with to every country we source from, as we grow as a company.
These organizations are feet on the ground, doing work to provide clean water, food, education, and so much more for people with need.
Every time you purchase a bag of our coffee, you can know that not only are you providing for the livelihood of farmers and their employees, you are also helping to make a bigger impact by providing for people with need.
Below you will find the organizations that we currently partner with.
The Cupcake Girls
We provide confidential support to those involved in the sex industry, as well as trauma-informed outreach, intensive case management, holistic resources, and referral services to provide prevention, and aftercare to those affected by sex trafficking. We provide nonjudgmental support to empower our clients in their pursuits through respect, resources, and relationships.
Local For All
We are a community-driven social enterprise and holistic resource center created to financially support and expand the programs and partnership of the Cupcake Girls. Inside this safe and inclusive space, the community of Las Vegas will feel welcomed to shop, eat, work, and receive the support and resources offered by the Cupcake Girls and their partners. Local for all will be a beacon in the Las Vegas community as an inclusive, safe space where every dollar will go towards positive social impact. In a city known for exclusivity, we are creating a space where everyone belongs.
Located in Kigali, Rwanda, Inkuru (Swahili for “Story”) is an organization helping to change the story for people living in poverty. By working to provide clean water, education, sports, and leadership development, Inkuru is helping to raise a generation of people after genocide stole the majority of the previous one. While based out of Kigali, Inkuru also serves people in the surrounding countries, including Ethiopia, Burundi, and Kenya.
Adventures In Life/Dave Millers Mexico
We know the importance of safe drinking water. The single largest ingredient in a good cup of coffee is water. Good, clean, pure water. Sadly, many people around the globe have no access to clean, safe water.
Dave Miller’s Mexico and Adventures in Life provides water filters to families and villages in Oaxaca, Mexico. Those filters can provide a lifetime of good, clean water for a family, filtering up to 150 gallons of water a day.
