Coffee for Climate is a group benefiting local Climate Change Activism, bringing the community of coffee industry professionals together with Climate Change Activists, working to educate our communities and help save our environment. Upon learning about the impact Climate Change has already had and is expected to have on coffee growers and their local economies all over the world, Coffee Artist Mike Lanni partnered with So Cal Climate Action Coalition 350 to raise funds and awareness for the issue.

Our team then partnered with SOLID Coffee Roasters (see link below), a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) to create “Coffee for Climate” branded coffee – top shelf beans from all over the world roasted to perfection. SOLID partners with nonprofits making it possible for us to donate over 70% of the profit on coffee sold to the cause.  Buying Coffee for Climate directly supports local Climate Change initiatives and activism. If you buy coffee anyway; please join us to make a difference, every day, one cup at a time.

The art tour is a monthly fundraising art and educational tour that takes place in coffee shops, roasteries, art galleries, museums and schools. A percentage of products sold (coffee and art) goes to local Climate Change Activism. The art show will attract locals in the area to visit the location, see the Coffee Art, taste the Coffee and other items offered, and learn about the local Climate Action projects to which they can contribute. There will be Climate Change speakers presenting and the opportunity to meet with the artist.

Why?

Climate Change is already affecting the world. One of the first major publicly recognized industries to be impacted is the Coffee Industry, from growers all the way up the chain to consumers. Coffee production is down 40% this year in some regions, with a huge impact on the lives of growers in many countries. Learn more in the Coffee as Casualty post here.

Without action, this problem will continue to grow beyond the Coffee Industry, and everyone in the world may be negatively affected. The ultimate impact is unknown and possibly dangerous to our health, the survival of our children, and their children.

We can create Action in Art! We have always believed that as artists we are responsible for communicating truth to the people of the world – that is our ultimate role. Leading in action to make a difference in Climate Change may be the most important communication we can make.

This action can start on the local level, by leveraging Coffee Culture to spread awareness and raise funds.
