We gather tips from coffee drinkers worldwide to fund pensions for coffee farmers in Colombia
THERE IS A COFFEE CRISIS.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.
You should care about the origin of your coffee and the sustainability of coffee farming around the world.
Coffee prices are at decade lows but retail coffee prices increase each year. Farmers in Colombia are selling below their cost of production.
85% of coffee farmers in Colombia have no savings. propina provides security, so the farmers can invest in sustainable farming methods to help them grow their coffee business.
We trace the coffee from seed to cup to ensure that the small farmers are fairly compensated for their work.
We partner with Colpensiones, the Colombia's public pension fund administrator, to harvest a future for the farmer and his family.
After each harvest we distribute tips to our partners at the public pension fund of Colombia for each farmer and worker.
When you leave a tip on our site, the funds go to the General Cafetero Fund to support healthcare, education for the coffee farmer's families and other initiatives.
