MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Fidalgo Coffee is partnered with Tierra Nueva, a non-profit mission based organization that serves those on the fringes in Central America and back home in Skagit County with Underground Coffee. Tierra Nueva operates a coffee farm in HondurasFinca Alta Mira. Fidalgo Coffee is the sole customer for their 8-10 thousand pound annual harvest. Fidalgo Coffee's CFO, David Evans sits on their board. The Underground Coffee program originated out of the Tierra Nueva mission with its jailhouse ministry and continues with that personality. The Underground Coffee mission is to help that population and community with one of the most complex problems in society. They call this "interrupting mass incarceration"—with a focus on drug and gang ex-offenders in the Skagit Country area.

Fidalgo employs people in this program and those employees roast and pack coffee for Fidalgo and its brand—Underground Coffee. This program creates gateway employment for men and women exiting the legal system. Underground Coffee is an outreach program and brand by Fidalgo Bay Coffee, Inc. The website is at www.underground.coffee

 

Fidalgo Coffee Roasters is proud to host and operate Underground Coffee, the flagship enterprise of Underground Employer Network—inspiring employers in Northwest Washington to hire released prisoners and help interrupt mass incarceration in our communities.
