The average family drinks 68 lbs of coffee a year. If that coffee was purchased from 41 & Change, that family would be making a donation of $547 a year to sending US and Nicaraguan kids to camp.

Literally every penny of profit from our coffee goes to sending kids to camp to have the best week of their lives, many right here in Nicaragua, where our coffee is grown, and some in North America, if you choose to support a local Young Life area as well.

Two Fundraising Scenarios

Subscription -

send people to buy coffee from our website and simply designate your area for the giveback

Sell coffee one time and enjoy a continual funding stream. For example, if you recruit 100 people to purchase 2 bags/mo:

  • 100 people X 2 bags/mo X $4 give-back = $800/mo
  • $800/mo X 12 months = $9,600/yr
  • $9,600 x 5 years = $48,000

Bulk Order -

you pay for and order coffee and have it shipped to you for resale and distribution

If 20 campers each sell 100 bags of coffee:

  • 20 kids X 100 bags X $5 give-back = $10,000
  • 20 kids in the US attend the best week of their lives
  • 2,000 bags sold also gives back $2,000 to Young Life Nicaragua
  • 31 Nicaraguan kids also go to the YL Camp in Nicaragua

The Numbers

So, what are our costs? glad you asked. You have a right to know. We're commited to transparency and accountability. Per coffee bag, here's what we spend on average:

$1.85 Labor, fertilizer, etc.
$0.35 Mill cost
$0.20 Import cost
$2.64 Roaster labor
$0.50 Packaging cost
$0.40 Marketing/Administration
$1.50 Shipping cost
————————————
$7.44 Cost per bag

So at $15.00 a bag, we give 50% of the cost of the bag to sending a young person to experience the best week of their lives.

Send Nicaraguan kids to La Finca, the Young Life camp

Paying a dignified wage to coffee workers in Nicaragua (25% more than the national minimum wage). Literally every penny of profit from our coffee goes to sending kids to camp to have the best week of their lives, many right here in Nicaragua, where our coffee is grown, and some in North America if you choose to support a local Young Life area as well.
