100% ORGANIC, FAIR TRADE, SHADE-GROWN COFFEE
The Literacy Council blend is a medium bodied coffee with a taste of wild berries and a subtle sweetness. A complex aroma precedes a smooth, balanced blend with hints of almond in the finish. This blend presents an exceptionally smooth cup with a very mild acidity. All of Higher Ground’s coffees are Fair Trade, organic, and shade-grown.
Fair Trade certification enables the farmers who grow our coffees to keep their family-owned farms and benefit from economic and educational programs, while growing a great organic crop. Our coffees are also grown in the shade of the forest canopy—preserving ancient forests and natural habitat for innumerable species of plants and animals.
This blend furthers the work of the Literacy Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing illiteracy in central Alabama. The Council's efforts include providing resources and referrals, maintaining a toll-free Literacy Helpline, training literacy tutors and conducting public awareness campaigns designed to keep the crisis of illiteracy in the public eye. Ten percent of the proceeds of this blend assist the Literacy Council’s efforts to eradicate illiteracy in Alabama.
