Fog Woman starts with coffee that is certified organic and shade grown so it tastes better and is better for you – and the environment. Fog Woman processors roast the beans slowly over controlled heat, so their coffees are smooth and never burned or bitter.
Song birds and hummingbirds that migrate from the coffee farms in Central and South America to Alaska need habitat to survive. When you purchase certified organic coffee, you’re preserving this rainforest habitat. Organic coffee farming requires trees to be interplanted with coffee shrubs. This process will fix nitrogen in the soil, prevent erosion, and provide shade for coffee plants. Free from pesticides, organic coffee thrives from beneficial insects.
Organic coffee farmers receive a premium price for their crops and that means a living wage to care for their families. In 2007, Fog Woman Coffee developed a scholarship for higher education. The organization has also been donating assistance for the people of Democratic Republic of Congo for over 35 years. Fog Woman supports Women in Safe Homes which provides a safe haven for women and their families in Alaska in times of crisis.
