Great, great idea: Contra Café
[editor’s note: this post was “pasted” in — it appeared originally at the old Dawson’s Danube site, which is archived here.]
I love this idea on many levels, including political.
At the height of the Cold War, the Nicaraguan Contras successfully fought to secure their freedom and block the spread of Communism. Today these freedom fighters need our help. Many former Contras are small-scale coffee farmers who produce high quality beans but struggle to break even because of low coffee prices. Your purchase of Contra Café allows these farmers to earn the livelihood they deserve.
Started by two Dartmouth MBA students, Contra Café promises great coffee, and I want to order it. Will they ship it to Austria? I’ve already asked and I’m hopeful for a quick and positive answer.
