In case you haven’t heard, Endiro is expanding to our first international location later this year. We have chosen a century-old building in historic downtown Aurora, Illinois. That’s just outside of the great city of Chicago. Endiro Aurora will be a roastery cafe and will allow us to bring our direct sourced Ugandan coffee to the American market. We expect that this will give us a much larger market for our farmer groups and thus make a broader and broader impact.
If you have seen our tshirts, you know that we believe that more coffee can change the world. This is because, we pay a fixed, dependable price for every kilo of coffee that we buy from our farmers. Usually, this price runs anywhere from 3-10 times what they earn from middlemen, cooperatives or other coffee companies. This is changing lives in Bukalasi where all our coffee has been coming from thus far. But now we are looking at farmer groups in other regions in Uganda and even in other nations. We are serious about this vision:
Our vision is to be a company that partners with others to end child vulnerability globally and to advance justice, peace, liberty, and dignity through the utilization of coffee and its related products, profits, services and spaces. In short, we are all about brewing a better world!
