NCA Coffee Gives Back Showcase Award

The NCA Coffee Gives Back Program

Supporting the coffee community.

Coffee is truly a global commodity, and supports the livelihood of millions – not just baristas and café owners, but thousands of coffee farmers and their families. For these farmers, it is a time of rapid change, resulting in environmental, social and economic challenges.

Some coffee growers successfully meet those challenges as they work their plots, large and small, while others face challenges they can at times find to be insurmountable – whether a lack of roads and infrastructure, to changing weather patterns.

While many of these challenges are shared across all types of agricultural communities, there are many companies and organizations working to support coffee communities, much of which takes place unnoticed, behind the headlines and trending flavors of the moment.

The NCA Coffee Gives Back Program is designed to recognize the nonprofits dedicated to supporting coffee communities facing challenges. Through initiatives ranging from health care to irrigation, these organizations are empowering people to thrive at every point of the supply chain - creating a better coffee industry for everyone.

The NCA Coffee Gives Back Program is comprised of two key components:


The NCA Coffee Gives Back Showcase

The NCA Coffee Gives Back Showcase is an online portal that highlights the work of nonprofits across the coffee supply chain, to help nonprofits raise awareness, share their message, and connect with coffee companies, coffee drinkers, and those who are interested in coffee.
