Doser: Crop To Cup
Founders: Jake Elster, Taylor Mork
Wake up and smell the coffee: The company mantra — Pride in crop, quality in cup — emphasizes the importance of maintaining relationships with the growers behind their product. C2C works directly with African farmers, ensuring profits go back to the community, helping to build schools, hire doctors, sponsor orphans, and more.
Why we love them: Besides delivering a boost of caffeine and good will to growers, C2C creates robust flavors that are all traceable back to their farm of origin. The sustainably-raised beans are roasted right here in Chicago.
Products: Coffee, espresso, espresso-horchata.
Dose appearances: June 5, July 10, September 25 and counting
