Enjoy those little moments of life and make your coffee even more meaningful where every purchase of yours can help the coffee growing communities.
Only true coffee lovers would appreciate the real joy of having a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning.
From the good old sleepless study nights during college to this day, when meeting work deadlines often means working for long hours, the humble cup of coffee has always been like a best friend to me that I have always relied on.
For both my husband and I, that heavenly aroma of coffee wafting through the air in the morning is one of the best feelings in the world. It kind of makes you feel instantly awake and you look forward to that day.
I have always loved supporting companies who do their part supporting the sustainable resource conversation
A couple of days back I came across Laughing Man® coffee, founded by Hugh Jackman; and upon reading their inspiring story of how it was established and how they work, I was really impressed. I knew I had to share it with you guys because I believe a good cause always needs to reach more people so that all of us can get involved together in it as a team.
So what is the story behind Laughing Man® Coffee and how can YOU contribute in giving back to the community?
On an inspiring visit to Ethiopia, Hugh Jackman met a young, aspiring coffee farmer named Dukale. Seeing Dukale’s optimism and determination, Hugh was inspired and created Laughing Man® Coffee. He committed to help improve the lives of coffee farmers and share their Fair Trade Certified™ coffees with the entire world.
Since its inception, Laughing Man® Coffee has always strived to ‘Make Every Cup Count’ by donating a portion of proceeds from each purchase to the Laughing Man® Foundation, which supports coffee farming communities and programs that clear the way to health, growth and success for coffee farmers and their families.
This means that every time you enjoy a cup of Laughing Man® Coffee, you make a positive impact because a portion of the proceeds from your purchase goes right back into the hardworking coffee farming communities.
I believe we as consumers have the power to make a difference and together we can help by supporting them and help achieve their goal.
And that’s not all. The Laughing Man® Coffee’s K-Cup® Pods are recyclable. In doing so they are truly making a difference in the environment. You just need to peel the foil lid, dispose or compost the coffee grounds and recycle the empty cup.
There are days when a freshly brewed cup of black coffee is just what I need to get my day started in the right direction.
On busy days, I normally use the K-Cup® Pods as they brew the perfect amount of coffee in just about a minute.
I tried two of their coffees – a dark roast as well a light roast.
Their Colombia Huila which is a dark roast coffee is produced from beans of great character, resulting in an intense, deep-roasted flavor with a black cherry sweetness, and a dark chocolate finish. Now doesn’t that sound absolutely tempting?
And for days when I want something milder, I went ahead and got their Ethiopia Sidama coffee. This sweetly aromatic, light-roasted coffee features bright citrus notes of bergamot and lime and is the kind you might experience at a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, where sharing a cup is an invitation of friendship.
You can get this coffee at your local Target – in both K-Cup® Pods as well as ground coffee.
Since I love the convenience of online shopping, I got these from Target.com. You can either select the free pick up in-store option or get it delivered straight to your door. Oh, the benefits of online shopping!
To be honest, nothing feels better than sipping on a cup of coffee and knowing that your purchase is going to help a good cause. It’s these little joys in life that help us truly appreciate and enjoy life.
