Native Root has partnered with Brooke Bierhaus, a filmmaker from Arkansas, to raise awareness for her documentary, "The Connected Cup," and to raise funds for people affected by civil war in Ethiopia. We created a limited edition coffee that will raise money for clean water, first aid, and education efforts.
Native Root founder Ervin Liz grew up seeing the injustices of the coffee trade, where farmers didn't get paid enough to provide for their families. He wanted to start a business that gave the farmers what they earned – good wages and credit for their hard work. For coffee lovers who want to bring more intentionality to their daily cup, Native Root is a company that connects you to the people who make your coffee possible.
Yes, we pay them 10% more... But that's not where we stop. For many coffee farmers, it's about more than money. It's about dignity and pride in work. That's why their faces are the face of Native Root. By telling their stories, geo-sourcing our beans, and naming the Nasa reservations where they live, we seek to uplift and empower these incredible people - through pay and through pride.
Angelica is a second-generation indigenous Nasa coffee farmer from the Togoima reservation. She has been farming for over 60 years, growing caturra and bourbon varietals on her farm near a bamboo forest. Angelica grows other crops along with her coffee, like avocados and bananas. Her coffee trees are also some of the oldest that we know. Some are more than 40 years old.
