Grab-A-Java

If you have heard of Grab-A-Java in Mission, you may think it is just another coffee shop. This particular one is much more than that. Grab-A-Java sells Fair Trade, called Cafe Femenino. This coffee producer first started in Peru as a business that focuses on improving the living conditions of women in Peru. In more rural societies in Northern Peru the marginalization of women is quite common. Cafe Fememino is a great way to help these women improve their circumstances. Since their beginning in 2004, they have also expanded to Africa. There is a documentary video of how it all began and the people supporting this specific coffee producer, David Perritt from Mission is among those featured in the film. So next time you need your morning fix, head over to Grab-A-Java and support a local business that supports others.
