Triskeles Foundation Launches Impact Coffee
Sourced in Peru and roasted locally by Stolen Sun Craft Brewing & Roasting Co., Impact Coffee supports the empowerment and promotion of women-grown coffee.
Triskeles Foundation, the leader in values-aligned donor advised funds and mission-based investment strategies, announced in January 2019 the launch of Impact Coffee. Sourced from Cooperative Agraria “Frontera San Ignacio” Ltda (COOPAFSI) in Peru and roasted locally in Exton, Pa. by Stolen Sun Craft Brewing & Roasting Co., each batch sold helps to make a positive difference by supporting gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns.
“At Triskeles, we are consistently working to build a positive future, engage individuals and enhance communities – and one of those ways is by aligning our work with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all,” said Triskeles Foundation Founder Clemens Pietzner. “When we work together for the betterment of our communities – both locally and globally – we can make a positive, lasting impact on our world. As we source, roast and, ultimately, sell each batch of Impact Coffee, we are creating measurable impact specific to UNSDG goal five, gender equality, and goal 12, responsible consumption and production.”
To make Impact Coffee, unroasted coffee beans are shipped from COOPAFSI and delivered to Stolen Sun where they are roasted on site exclusively for Triskeles Foundation by master roaster and licensed Q Arabica grader Jonathan Zangwill. Zangwill travels the world sourcing the finest ingredients in an effort to both deliver a superior product, and learn about the impact to local economies, culture and responsible production practices. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Impact Coffee will be donated back to Triskeles Foundation to help support its mission.
COOPAFSI was officially established in June 1969 and promotes women-grown coffee. Gender equality was an important factor when the land was purchased and divided among producers, and the women who work at this cooperative continually manage new projects and develop new ways to improve the lives of their families. They contribute to the physical and sensory quality of the coffee as they focus their efforts on improving quality and delivering consistent coffee to different markets. Further, in 2016, a committee of women was created by the cooperative that is responsible for distributing loans to enable producers to improve their land, while also taking part in new developments for their kitchens, crafts and livestock. They also created a computer lab that allows all members to experience and engage with modern technology.
