Who is Their-Bucks?
A mission team of Mt. Pleasant, SC Presbyterians traveled to Nicaragua in the fall of 2003. One of the many rewarding experiences was learning about the farmers of the El Porvenir Coffee Cooperative. It was apparent that in spite of their resourcefulness and hard work, these coffee farmers were being ignored and mistreated by the large coffee middlemen.
Because they are small and defenseless, no one cared about the sustain-ability or quality of their coffee. Some of these same Presbyterians formed Their-Bucks Coffee to buy coffee directly from El Porvenir and to pay them more than world “fair trade” price for it. Profits from the sale of coffee will be used to assist the farmers of El Porvenir.
