Do You Really Donate to Charity

Yes. When we founded Coffee ‘n’ Capes, we wanted our organization to make a meaningful difference in the world. While none of us have superpowers (yet) we can still be heroes in our communities.

What Is the Podcast About & Where Can I Find It

Coffee ‘n’ Capes started out as a podcast between two of our co-founders, Dave and John. They formed a strong bond over a mutual love for coffee, comics, and the community of geek culture they grew up in. The podcast talks about those things. It is light-hearted, fun, and can be found HERE on Spotify Podcasts. You can also find it on Itunes and YouTube (though Dave and John don’t know why anyone would want to watch them).

What Is Fair Trade Coffee & Do You Offer It

Fair Trade-certified coffee means that the coffee has been audited throughout the supply chain and meets certain sustainability and labor standards. While not all of our coffee’s are certified Fair Trade they are all ethically and carefully sourced to make sure the employees are treated fairly and paid a living wage.

What Is Single Origin

Single-origin coffee is coffee grown within a single known geographic origin. Single-origins can offer unique characteristics and specific tastes when compared to blended coffees from multiple origins.

What Is A Blend Coffee

Blending coffee produces a well-rounded coffee because once other coffee origins are introduced, weaker areas of the base coffee are strengthened. Mixing various elements from different sources offers the ultimate complex and rare yet smooth flavor profile.

What Is Swiss Water Processed Decaf

The Swiss Water Decaf Process is a decaffeination process in which coffee is decaffeinated using an environmentally friendly, chemical-free, 99.9% caffeine-free water process and all the while having great taste at the same time.
