(fair and responsible)
A quest to roast the best artisan coffee in world,
while providing clean water to those in need.
Our mission starts with our name – ‘Libra’ – meaning ‘unit of weight or balance.’ We believe balance means fairness, and that fairness means ensuring each person on our planet has basic human needs met.
In the dry season of coffee producing countries, people must drink from contaminated water sources. These are the same waters where others wash their clothes, take baths and even throw trash. For those downstream, this water is all they have to rely on, and often leads to ecoli poisoning and disease. Ecoli will make national headlines in the U.S. for meat contamination, but it goes unnoticed in poverty-stricken countries.
Libra Coffee gives water filters to the communities we source from, so they don’t have to worry about how to get clean water. For each bag of coffee purchased, $1 goes toward an extra-strength water filter for the locals. Each filter has the power to provide clean drinking water to 100 people for up to 5 years.
You are invited to be a part of our mission, because we believe that drinking extraordinary coffee makes a big difference – in more ways than one.
(coffee with a cause)
At Libra, we believe your coffee should have purpose. That is why we have built a platform on which to provide clean drinking water for those who are less fortunate, while aiming to create a sustainable model for improving our coffee quality. We promise that Libra will never compromise our quality, integrity or environment in the pursuit of monetary gain.
