Who are Coffee Kids?

Coffee Kids started operating as a program of Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung North America in 2015. Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung North America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which has over 250 staff within its network in countries throughout Latin America, Africa, and Asia, providing deep and lasting support to coffee farmers and farmer organizations, many of which have worked previously with Coffee Kids. Coffee Kids relies on the generous support of its donor community for program funding, and this funding can now go even further in reaching farming communities with the support of Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung based in Hamburg, Germany.

Where Does Coffee Kids Work In?

Why Should I Buy A Shirt From You?

We are awesome; what else can I say? 

All joking aside, hopefully these designs are something you connect with and you havent found anywhere else, but more importantly we give back and your purchases protect the future for coffee! 

Why Do Some Shirts Cost More?

Some of our shirts are made in America and thus reflect the cost of doing so. We are moving to have every shirt made in America, as we believe that not only should farmers be treated fairly but every person in our business should be treated fairly. 

What's The Difference Between Men's and Women's Clothing

Some clothes within our catalogue are unisex and others are cut to fit either a more masculine or feminine style. We believe you can wear any shirt you like, but the distinction is there to identify the difference in the cut of the shirt.   

Can I do Direct Donations?
