Why I Started A Company That Gives Away 50% of Its Profit

People think I’m crazy for starting a company that gives away 50% of its profit to charity, but I think it’s pretty awesome. I understand the logistics of what giving away 50% of your companies profits means, but that’s exactly why I’m doing it. I want to make as big of a difference I can. Life is too short to not give back to others. 

Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year, making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world. And not to mention, coffee represents 75% of all the caffeine consumed in the United States.What if we could tap into this truth and help make the world a better place?
Here at Cause Roast, we believe the consumption of coffee has the power to change the world. Our goal is to provide high-quality, fair-trade coffee that gives 50% back to the world’s greatest causes and needs. Every bag of coffee purchased will help change the life of someone in need.

How Does It work?

Each month we will partner with a new organization and then at the end of that month write that organization a check for 50% of that months profit. It’s a simple process that I believe has the potential to help change millions of people.

Why Coffee?

Simple. Because I love coffee, the plethora of different beans available from around the world, and the sustainability it offers.

  1. Hey Jarrid,
    I “stumbled” across your website preparing to preach. Loved your list of people God used in spite of their short-comings. Then I saw that you roast coffee!
    We have a coffee business too and give away a portion of our proceeds to ministries around the world. Check us out we’re http://www.furnacehillscoffee.com.
