Final Donations Being Accepted for the Grounds for Health Green Coffee Auction

Many of the most reputable coffee importers in the United States have been doing their part to support the semiannual Grounds for Health coffee auction, donating individual bags and boxes of green coffee to support women’s health throughout numerous coffee-growing regions.

The online charity auction begins Thursday, June 16, and runs through Wednesday, June 23, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Grounds for Health. Since 2009, the auction program has raised nearly $650,000 for the nonprofit organization, which for the past 20 years has run programs in coffee-growing parts of Latin America and Africa toward cervical cancer prevention and treatment.

The group is posting a list of the donated coffees here, while the auction also supports bidding for coffee-related goods and services, so far including a Baratza grinder, a Bunn Trifecta single-cup brewer, evaluation products from Coffee Analysts and one-year Tastify licenses from Sustainable Harvest. As of this writing, 21 green coffee traders — including traditional importers and other coffee businesses with import wings — with coffees in U.S. warehouses have donated bags from as little as 33 pounds up to 154 pounds.

Here’s an FAQ for green coffee importers interested in donating to the cause, and here’s an FAQ for roasters who may be interested in bidding.
