HOPE Blend Coffee

MarketPlace

What

This coffee was grown near Cusmapa, Nicaragua. Some of the coffee farmers working in the Cusmapa coffee cooperative also have children attending Fabretto’s school and eating FMSC meals each day. Not only can you enjoy a great cup of coffee -- you can directly support the farmers who grow the beans and the children receiving an education and a school lunch from FMSC by purchasing a bag of Fabretto Coffee today.

This Nicaraguan coffee is a medium roast and has medium acidity and body. We have noted aroma and flavors of peanut, melon and apricot. The finish is bright, yet dry.

Why

This coffee makes a delicious iced coffee! One pound provides 33 meals.

Classic Clay Bracelet

MarketPlace

What 

Artisans at Papillon hand roll the clay beads used to create these one-of-a-kind bracelets.

This unique clay has a story. In desperate times, extremely poor families in Haiti will mix clay from the ground with water, oil and salt to create a clay "cookie." These clay cookies are eaten by adults and children in order to fill their stomachs when food is not available. 

By transforming the same clay into these beautiful bracelets, artisans from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti are able to sculpt their way out of poverty and support their families! 

Why

Again, we just love accessorizing. This bracelet comes in a variety of fun, vibrant colors. Each one provides 31 meals.
