Anniversary Blend 2013
Staying true to our commitment to communities at origin, proceeds of Anniversary Blend 2013 will help young Ethiopians make a fresh start.
This year’s Anniversary Blend celebrates our commitment to exceptional coffees and our support for communities at origin. For every Anniversary Blend coffee, Anniversary Breakfast Blend tea, or Steamers beverage purchase, we’ll contribute 5% of the proceeds to KIMSSA*.
Our long-time coffee partner, Hailu Gebre Hiwot, sourced the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe in this year’s Anniversary Blend and runs Ethiopia’s Kidane Mehret Students Self-Help Association (KIMSSA). He founded the school 20 years ago alongside his home, offering assistance to disadvantaged boys and girls aged 6–18. KIMSSA’s mission is to provide food, education, vocational training, and other services to empower Ethiopia’s youth towards a better life.
The KIMSSA donation from this year’s Anniversary Blend is an extension of our support for this school as Peet’s employees have been personally donating to KIMSSA since 2006. So grab a bag of Anniversary Blend and help us continue our commitment to healthy, fulfilling lives for our global communities.
