Through our involvement in the industry and participation in Coffee Trade Shows and research we discovered that on average it is reported that from the time that coffee plants are placed in the ground the amount of water required to grow the beans for 1 cup of coffee is 37 gallons. has an article which outlines How much Water Is in Our Food? With the 108 gallons of water needed to brew a gallon of tea and the 1,056 gallons of water needed to brew a gallon of coffee. In processing our cold brew beverages, we are water intensive as well.

Our business in the Miami Valley is located on top of the Great Miami River Watershed. When looking for a nonprofit organization to support, partnering with the Ohio River Foundation makes perfect sense.
