Following the lessons of our foodservice network we’ve recognized the need to give back to our communities here and abroad. We support our farmers in Nicaragua and as many community organizations in our Metro DC Neighborhood as possible.
At the farm level where we source our beans we have always believed in our social responsibility to the Farm with fair pricing and paying a premium to the grower. Giving back to the workers and their families who provides us with the beautiful premium coffee cherries which produce a great cup is something we are proud of and is a huge incentive in our world.
Civically we support the city that drinks our coffee most (Washington DC area), Santa Lucia participates with many food related organizations and at many charity fundraisers throughout the year. Stop by one of these great Chef driven events we participate in, sample a cup and say hello!
