This coffee is a collaborative effort between VCU's Rams in Recovery and Lamplighter Coffee Roasters and with this release, you can now directly support this incredible program! For every bag sold, we donate 50% of the profits back to Rams in Recovery. The coffee we are using is a blend of beans from around 30 small scale farmers in the Gaitania region of Colombia. This "micro-regional" lot was sourced by our importer partners at Cedro Alto coffee who offer full price transparency and traceability for every coffee they sell.
Founded in 2013, Rams in Recovery provides direct support for students in recovery from substance use disorders and seeks to create a recovery friendly campus. We believe that students should never have to choose between their recovery and their education. The sales of Recovery Roast Coffee will help fund the Recovery Scholars Program, which supports students in their academic career endeavors with a focus on service. There are now ten editions of Recovery Roast coffee, including one created for Tate Modern London! Recovery Roast is also served on Free Hot Coffee Bikes around the world.
