For a Common Cause
“For a Common Cause” is our way of giving back to local communities and regional causes. Every month a member of the CMCR team nominates both a coffee and a cause close to their heart, with $2 from every 250g bag of that coffee sold being donated to the chosen cause.
Chosen By: Tam Ping, Junior Roaster
The Cause: Habitat for Humanity Singapore
The reason why I chose Habitat is because I was deeply moved by their vision of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live, building a house for those living in poverty. Habitat for Humanity Singapore is part of an international Christian housing charity that seeks to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. Since 2004, Habitat Singapore regularly sends volunteer teams to build decent and affordable houses across the Asia-Pacific region.
Yirgcheffe is the place where heirloom varieties, naturally organic farming practices, high altitudes and perfect growing conditions converge. The ‘zero’ in Yirzero refers to the absence of defects in this coffee, thanks to the extra cash incentives which are given to the women who painstakingly sort by hand a much smaller amount of coffee over a much longer period of time. The end result is an immaculate ‘zero defect’ lot from Yirgacheffe.
In the cup you can expect a
Floral Aroma, Apricot and Peach Flavours with a Layered Juicy-sweet Finish.
