Crowd funding your coffee


Local roaster Peace Coffee is one of just half-a-dozen North American roasters piloting Grow Ahead, a new financing model that connects coffee drinkers with small-scale growers around the globe.

It’s like Kickstarter for your morning cup of joe. Like that popular “crowd funding” website — where dozens or hundreds of contributors each make small donations to fund creative enterprises — Grow Ahead aims to help independent coffee farmers gain access to affordable pre-financing for their next harvest.
