To most Americans, their morning doesn’t start until they have that first cup of coffee. Coffee is consumed in great quantities and is one of the world’s most traded commodities. It’s no secret that Americans love coffee, but how many know where their coffee beans came from?
Gorongosa National Park is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, but it was devastated by 25 years of civil war. Today, Gorongosa National Park is coming back to life and is considered one of the greatest restoration projects of all time. Coffee is a part of that restoration equation. High-quality Arabica coffee beans grow on the slopes of Mount Gorongosa, harvested through the employment of local farmers. The coffee project is one of the development programs designed to help over 150,000 Mozambicans who live around Gorongosa National Park.
What if with every sip of coffee, you were making a difference? By purchasing the Gorongosa Coffee, you are helping to protect endangered wildlife, create jobs, and provide healthcare for the people of Gorongosa. 100% of the coffee profits help fund conservation and human development projects in and around Gorongosa National Park. We believe that people and the planet can thrive together. Every cup of Gorongosa Coffee helps make this hope a reality for the animals and people of Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.
Gorongosa Coffee can be purchased at the Zootique Giftshop at Zoo Boise. Admission into Zoo Boise is not required to visit the Zootique Giftshop. The cost of the coffee is $19.95 for a 12-ounce bag of ground or whole bean. The coffee comes in 2 blends, Girls Run the World and Lion’s Blend.
