Is it time to ReThink Your Organization’s Coffee Program?

ReThink Coffee – Sustainable Coffee Program for Organizations and Churches

We wanted to take this opportunity to announce our newest venture with Agros. ReThink coffee is a new way to look at your organization or church missions program. Instead of purchasing coffee that keeps people in a cycle of poverty and then giving money out to various missions, ReThink coffee offers a better way to do real missions work.

Many people do not understand that coffee is the second largest commodity in the world… next to oil. While we can’t make much of a difference with our oil purchases – we can all make a huge difference in our coffee purchases. If every coffee drinker were to be more responsible in their coffee purchases – poverty in many of the world’s rural areas would be overcome.

We use the term “The coffee that helps you sleep at night” because every time you purchase coffee… you know that you are helping third-world farmers on their path to sustainability. This work allows us to truly “Teach a man to fish” instead of “giving a man a fish”. When we help a family through loans and education to first own their own land this gives them the opportunity to have hope for their future and as a direct result of our support for the products they grow they now have life. When we give them a handout or a short-term fix, fear is created because they don’t know who to go to tomorrow.

As Americans, we must change our thinking from “is this the best price for coffee?” to “will this small amount of money be multiplied to create the most good in the lives of the people who earn it?”

For more information please go to and remember whenever you purchase your next package of coffee, make sure it is certified organic…shade grown…and fairly traded.

Thanks for coming along with us on this journey of responsible consumerism – and remember next time you are re-thinking your coffee selection…there is really a coffee that helps you sleep at night.

If you’re interested in getting coffee for your organization or you are looking for a new church coffee program, please visit ReThink Coffee’s website to buy ethical coffee.

Coffee of the Month – May

Honduras Coffee
The perfect blend of rich molasses tones with slight hints of caramel and spice. Honduras is relatively new to high-end arabica coffees. Its soil, climate, and altitude are all perfect for coffee growing. This Honduras coffee has a pleasant brightness and a medium to heavy body to compliment the sweeter molasses and caramel tones. Our Honduras coffee is dark roasted coffee to bring out the fullest and best flavor!(This coffee is also available in Swiss Water Processed (SWP) Decaf in all available roast levels. Water processing coffee is the absolute best way to decaffeinate coffee, because it’s the safe decaf coffee.

Here’s some information on Honduras:
According to the Department of State’s Website (click this link to read more in-depth info. on Honduras), Honduras is slightly larger in size than Virginia with an area of 122,090 sq. km. Its capital city, Tegucigalpa has a population of just over 1,150,000 people and the overall population of Honduras is around 7.3 million people. The primary language spoken in Honduras is Spanish. Their main exports are Coffee, shrimp, bananas, palm oil, gold, zinc/lead concentrates, soap/detergents, melons, lobster, pineapple, sugar, lumber, and tobacco.

Our Honduras coffee is grown at altitudes above 4900 feet in rich volcanic soil. More importantly, we’ve formed partnerships with the farmers that grow this coffee through our purchasing and commitment to quality with Agros. We’ve been able to work there towards breaking the cycle of poverty! Our Honduras coffee is one of the best coffees in the world. It’s also ethical coffee.

We hope you love this Rich Honduras Dark Roast as much as we do!

April Coffee of the Month –Papua New Guinea Coffee

Papua New Guinea – Medium Roast

Papua New Guinea CoffeeOur Papua New Guinea coffee is one of our most popular coffees which is entirely understandable given it’s undertones that provide hints of cocoa. It has a medium to full body and is considered by many to be among the finest and most expensive coffee in the world. Most of PNG’s arabica coffee comes from trees that were uprooted in Jamaica (Blue Mountain) and replanted in PNG.

Our Papua New Guinea Coffee

Papua New Guinea CoffeeAccording to the Department of State’s website (click the link if you’d like to read all the in depth details on PNG), PNG is roughly the size of the state of California and has around 6.3 million people. It has three official languages (English, Tok Pisin, and Motu) as well as close to 860 other languages which plays a huge part in the overall fragmentation of the country and it’s people. Another topic of note is that PNG only has 49.3% literacy.

Papua New Guinea CoffeePapua New Guinea is known as a country ripped in pieces by civil war, lawlessness and poverty. Yet in the last few years, thanks to many factors including sustainable coffee purchasing, Papua New Guinea has started down the road to recovering it’s economy and government corruption. It’s a long road ahead, but we have helped immensely and can continue to help just through responsible purchasing.

Jeff’s blog post on Monday will make a great point: Don’t buy coffee at a price that negatively affects the coffee farmers and then throw money their way later on to sooth your conscience. Instead, feel confident and proud that you are not only helping these people monetarily through your purchasing, but working together with them in sustainable practice. It truly blesses both you and them to think about it that way, and that is the truth! Instead buy ethical coffee from a coffee club like our Coffee Lover’s Club!

That’s it for this one! Thanks for reading.

We’re Live!


We’ve been working hard on a new way for our customers to learn more about the world of coffee. Are you interested in our company, our commitment to excellence, ethical coffee and the people that grow our coffee? We have found that whenever we get a chance to chat one-on-one with someone and are able to tell them our focus from our hearts, they always become more involved and more a part of their daily cup of coffee.

Get Into Your Coffee…

Ok, we don’t mean that you need to start dipping your fingers in your morning cup of Papua New Guinea coffee or take a bath in that dark roasted Sumatra coffee. What we’re trying to say is “Get into your coffee and understand what you’re drinking and why you’re drinking it!”.


There is so much to know and coffee affects so many people globally. It isn’t that hard to start learning… it’s just a matter of being a part of a community…


CICR is proud to introduce our blog to our Coffee Lover’s Club members, our Wholesale customers, our Licensee’s worldwide, and anyone else that wants to learn more and “Get Into Their Coffee…”

Enjoy being a part of the community surrounding the coffee you drink daily!

We’ll see ya there!
