Burundian green coffee company JNP Coffee announces a vital partnership with Go Fund Bean, which aggregates virtual tip jars for coffee workers around the world, to support baristas who have been suffering financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the month of July, JNP will donate 5% of their sales to Go Fund Bean to create a fund for need-based grants for coffee professionals, which will be awarded based on an application process that will assess financial hardship during the pandemic. Applications will be available in mid- to late-July.
Those who order green coffee from JNP can use the code “GFB2020” at checkout to indicate they want a portion of their sale to be donated; the minimum purchase amount is one bag of coffee.
“This opportunity to collaborate with JNP Coffee will help coffee professionals in need while also encouraging roasters, cafes, and home coffee lovers alike to try some delicious Burundian coffees that they may have skipped in the past,” says Go Fund Bean founder Adam JacksonBey.
