"Pheo Coffee's plan is to capture enough of the 400 million cups consumed in the United States every day to create a sustainable pipeline of happy coffee drinkers funding health care abroad.” - Washington Post
Message from the founder
There are too many people in the world who lack access to basic medical care due to cost. I launched Pheo Coffee with the mission of using one of the most consumed beverages in the world to fund this care.
We strive to provide you the highest quality coffee delivered to your doorstep a few days after it's roasted.
Each bag will teach you about an amazing medical discovery and provide a photo of an actual person who was directly helped by your purchase. Together we can fight fatigue and fund healthcare around the world.
As seen in
Our beans are sourced from various regions around the world, often importing directly from coffee farmers. Our initial Norepi coffee comes directly from Ethiopia. Since March 2017, coffee farmers are allowed to export their coffee directly, which allows for separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia.
Does my money really fund medical care?
We partner with Watsi to fund medical care in the developing world. They have done a fantastic job creating a seamless method of funding care and we want to help. See who our coffee has funded so far.
When is the coffee roasted?
The coffee is roasted 1-2 times per week and shipped within 1-2 days. We strive to provide you the freshest and most delicious beans possible.
Why is it named Pheo Coffee?
A "pheochromocytoma" is a rare condition in which your body releases far more adrenaline than is necessary, resulting in a set of symptoms that can feel like the effects of a really strong cup of coffee. A 'Pheo' is a shorthand name of this condition.
"As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move...similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle."
Honore de Balzac (1799-1859)
