Grounds for Health

Posted on August 31, 2011


For a limited time you have the opportunity to support an excellent charity while putting in your mouth one of the best coffees that this planet, and probably this universe has to offer.  The coffee in question is the Finca Tanzania from one of the award winning farms of Aida Battle, and the charity is Grounds For Health, a charity dedicated to providing cervical cancer screening and healthcare for women in coffee growing regions.  While cervical cancer is a relatively treatable form of cancer, it is still a major health problem to many of these women whose access to care is compounded by alarmingly high rates. Read more details about their mission on their website linked above, or about Aida’s coffees here at the Counter Culture Coffee website.
