October Letter from the CEO
Hey DK Fam,
October was a packed month! Thank you for making us a part of your daily routine. Whether you start your day with us, or you add your kafe to your midday mix, I want to express our gratitude and appreciation to you.
What’s in a great coffee company? I believe it’s high quality coffee, authenticity, community and connecting with our producers in the most fundamental ways. Every time I hear about what’s happening sociopolitically at origin in both Nicaragua, and Haiti I get excited about the opportunity to continue contributing positively into the economies of their communities. Although it’s been difficult to export coffee through these challenging times in both Haiti and Nicaragua, we’ve continued to work tirelessly to bring only the highest quality coffee to your table. These are challenging and exciting times for both countries so we’re keeping a close eye on the movements happening on the ground.
When you purchase a bag of Davila Kafe, I want you to know you’re saying “YES” to communities in Dipilot, Nicaragua, to the hillsides of Thiotte, Haiti, and the mountain forests of Dondon located in northern Haiti. In fact, with each purchase of DK you’re joining a community that believes specialty coffee should be sustainable, and that coffee farmers deserve fair wages because it all begins with them.
As we enter November, I hope you’ll stay connected with us and take advantage of our holiday sales this season. Be sure to stop by and say hello at one of our many pop-up shops in the DMV and New York or even on our social media channels. Lastly, we’re highlighting members of our community through our newsletter. This month, we have a special recipe submission from Sharon Brun, a highly celebrated food and lifestyle blogger based in Haiti. Be sure to try out her “Tropical Upside Down Fruit and Nut Cake” for your Thanksgiving table and pair it with your favorite DK roast! Until next time.
