Guest Barista Day to Benefit Trees, Water & People June 5!

World Environment Day is coming up on June 5, and we are celebrating Human Bean style…by supporting a fantastic local nonprofit!

On Monday, June 5, we are excited to welcome Molly Geppert and Katie Murphy from Trees, Water & People to be our guest baristas at our Midtown Fort Collins and Crossroads Loveland locations. During the day, 10 percent of all sales from these two stands will be donated to this incredible organization to support their mission of conserving natural resources and promoting environmental responsibility.

Trees, Water & People are stationed locally but travel extensively to Latin America and U.S. Tribal lands to preserve the outdoors. Their programs not only focus on environmental conservation efforts but also bring economic opportunities, healthier living conditions and green job training to locals and the communities where they work. Their projects include clean cookstoves, reforestation efforts, renewable energy and heating systems and working with locals to improve sustainable practices in farming. Additionally, they work hands-on with many smallholder coffee farmers in Latin America to improve their livelihoods!

One of the most exciting things about this organization is that they provide multiple opportunities to join their mission and experience environmental conservation firsthand. In addition to offering several volunteer opportunities, they open up their many projects to community members. Learn more about traveling to a project location.

This organization strikes a personal chord with us because one of our veteran baristas, Katie, left The Human Bean a year ago and joined Trees, Water & People to pursue her passion of serving the community and environment. We are so proud of her and the remarkable work she is doing, and we hope you will join us in supporting Trees, Water & People on June 5!
