Three Avocados: Coffee for you, water for them

I've never been a huge coffee drinker. Not just because caffeine doesn't affect me, but mostly due to embarrassment that I enjoyed it with sugar and cream and not black. I love the taste of coffee, but I like it sweetened. Why does this matter? Honestly, I have no clue... but this isn't about me. It's about them.

Three Avocados is a non-profit company that started from a mission trip to Uganda in 2010. While there, an act of an old widow inspired them to choose their name. Their goal is to provide clean water in Uganda, and education in Nicaragua.

100% of the profits go to these causes. That can range from between $0.50 a bag and $3.00 a bag depending on where the coffee is purchased, but purchasing directly through their website will give the most per bag since it cuts out the middle-man.

I actually contacted Three Avocados asking if I could help them promote their company in any way. When I found out about them, I fell in love with the idea and wanted to help. Though not requested, Three Avocados offered me the chance to sample their coffee, as well. I received their Uganda Bugisu coffee, described as having a "clean, bold taste with hints of bittersweet chocolate". Their other coffee, the Nicaraguan, is described as "sweet, with low acidity and fruity tones" and "milder"  than the Uganda Bugisu.

I'm not going to pretend to be a coffee guru. I'm not. I know very little in the differences between coffee tastes. I do know that I tried a kona blend once and hated it because it was a fruity flavoured sweet. My favourite (general) coffees are Italian roast, French Roast and a local roasting company's Reserve Blend (which claims to be dark with a chocolate hint, though unflavoured). If that helps you get an idea of my taste at all, I enjoyed the Uganda Bugisu, though it wasn't as dark rich bold as I expected it to be, but the flavour was delicious. (See? Totally not a coffee connoisseur. Maybe, someday?)

By the way, it is seemingly impossible it is to photograph ordinary coffee (nothing fancy), and there is no way to share with you the delightful aroma in the air when I brew a cup. You'll just have to take my word for it....

...or, if you love coffee, why not give them a try? Not only will your purchase provide the coffee you desire, but it will help better the life of another. The purchase of 4 bags can give someone clean water for life.

Have a family member that loves coffee? Three Avocados coffee is a great gift, and it gives twice!

They also have coffee subscriptions where you can save $1 per bag when you sign up for a monthly autoship (and shipping is included).

Not a coffee drinker? No problem! You can donate to their cause, or help get the word out about them. Together, we can all make a difference!

While Three Avocados does offer an affiliate program, I am choosing not to participate because that would take away from the money going to help others. Instead, any links for Three Avocados that you see in this post and on the blog are straight links to the page and will give the most to their cause.

You can follow Three Avocados on FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
