Today's morning coffee was by Cura Coffee.  This was a new-to-me coffee that offers direct sales, shipped to my home in bean, ground or k-cup form.  I chose the k-cups because although I own 5 different coffee makers, I use my Keurig most of all.  I love a rich, strong, dark brew and although the k-cups come in a medium roast, I found it to be a nice morning breakfast coffee that was rich and smooth. Not a hint of bitterness nor of any burnt taste, it was a medium coffee that didn't have any overwhelming or underwhelming flavors; the blend seemed to be just perfect for a nice, even cup of coffee that almost anyone could enjoy.

But this company has a secret.  Not only do they offer a smooth, delicious coffee, they are on a mission.  A mission to help improve the quality of life for people in Nicaragua in need of dental care.

Americans are busy, often self-centered, sometimes abrupt and usually exhausted.  Our economy is a mess, our lives are hectic, we are just trying to keep one foot in front of the other and trudge on day to day.  But in the heart of Americans is generosity.  And when there is an emergency, a need, a story, a plea, Americans give and give graciously.  Why?  Because it feels good to give.  It feels good to help.  And when it's EASY to give and to help...  we do it even more.

That's what Cura Coffee strives to do.  Raise money for a worthy cause by not only making it EASY to give, but by giving you a product that you buy, enjoy and use anyway; but now, without any work on your part, you are helping to make a little corner of the world a better place.

Cura Coffee offers giving that goes "beyond the cup".  When you purchase one of their products, you are helping poor farmers and families in Nicaragua to not only make a better living, but to have dental care.  Something we in the United States tend to take for granted as being readily available.

"Cura Coffee connects coffee lovers with farmers and families 
who harvest the finest organic coffee beans. 
With every cup of Cura, you join our effort to expand 
sustainable dental care to remote communities around the world. 
We are direct-trade coffee with direct impact, 
brought directly to you."

Nearly 70% of Nicaraguans live on less than $2 per day and have limited or no access to dental care. Poor dental hygiene can contribute to a number of negative health conditions, most of which are completely preventable with proper care.

Farmers in rural areas bear an unequal share of this burden. Nicaragua exports coffee beans from coffee cooperatives, such as Tierra Nueva located in the town of Boaco. Cura Coffee Co. buys premium coffee directly from the Tierra Nueva Cooperative at Fair-Trade prices, which in turn supports their economy and sustains dental care in this remote community.  Since 2008, they've seen nearly 4,500 patient and performed more than 7,700 procedures through Foundation for Worldwide Health.

I was contacted by Cura Coffee and offered a chance to try a sample of their coffee for free in the hopes they can spread the word about their mission, vision and company.  I chose to do this review of their company and is my own opinion. I was not paid to do so. Print Friendly and PDF
