Pride Blend is here!

We are so excited for the release of Pride Blend this year, both for the delicious coffee and to show our support to our community. Pride Blend is more than just a delicious blend of coffees from Colombia, Ecuador, and Brazil. It’s part of our Making Coffee Matter program, a series of seasonal coffees we produce, and with each one, donate to a different non-profit dedicated to helping the communities we care about. This season we are donating $10,000 to the Ali Forney Center, an organization based in New York dedicated to helping LGBTQ homeless youth around the country.

Founded in 2002, the center helps nearly 1,400 youths per year gain access to housing and supportive services that help them prepare for independent living. Something they would not have access to otherwise, simply for being themselves. Our donation will support AFC’s Learning, Employment, Advancement and Placement (LEAP) program, which provides stipends and paid internships. In addition to our donation this year, Allegro will be hiring a paid intern of our own, and teaching them about coffee, roasting, and everything that goes into the perfect cup.

To join in the celebration, pick up a bag of Pride Blend in your local Whole Foods Market, or in our online store – available now through the end of June. If you’re interested in donating to AFC and learning more about their initiatives, click here.
