Day 10 Giveaway: Aspire Coffeeworks

Today's giveaway comes from Aspire Coffeeworks - a division of Aspire, a non-profit leader in services for children and adults with developmental disabilities in Illinois. Their goal is to help people with developmental disabilities achieve their highest potential where they live, learn, work, or play.

Aspire Coffeeworks partnered with Metropolis Coffee Company, one of the nation's top artisan coffee roasters. Employees from Aspire, (who have disabilities) work alongside the Metropolis Coffee Company employees to grind, package, and ship the orders. Each bag of coffee is roasted to order, dated, and packaged to ship directly to your home.

About the coffee: Our coffee is craft-roasted by some of the nation's most talked-about coffee experts. Using vintage German roasting equipment, Metropolis Coffee's roasters are artists who carefully craft the flavor of each batch. All of the coffee blends are certified organic and carry the Fair Trade Logo.

Not only are people with Down syndrome and other disabilities being employed through this venture, but 100% of proceeds from their products help fund Aspire's programs for children and adults with disabilities. Win-win!

Watch the video of the partnership:

Mmmmmm, coffee! Nectar of the Gods. Entering for Bold please, and ground, even though I know true coffee snobs like to grind their own, I'm too lazy & too addicted to wait the extra 60 seconds in the morning.
