We were absolutely thrilled to get the call from O magazine saying we’d earned a place among the holy grail of gift guides! Our Exotic medium roast coffee is featured in O, the Oprah Magazine holiday edition, (on page 110 for those who are eager to see) now on stands across Canada and the US.
“We are honored that we were selected as the only coffee and Canadian company in this influential magazine,” says Ethical Bean Co-Founder Lloyd Bernhardt. “I like to think that Ethical Bean’s commitment to quality, fairness, transparency and being very involved in the communities that we buy and sell into had something to do with us being chosen.”
We’re hoping that the “Oprah Effect” will work its magic in December, because partial proceeds from every bag of coffee you buy goes to the Ethical Bean Guatemalan Scholarship Fund which provides children in Guatemala with the finances for school registration fees, uniforms, and school supplies. The remainder of the funds raised will be donated to Project Somos Children’s Village, a Vancouver-based charity that will provide shelter, support and opportunities for orphaned and abandoned children in Guatemala.
