What’s special about Kentucky Dream?
This blend is spicy and nutty with a stout dose of body and medium acidity. A blend of beans from Nicaragua and Sumatra, it’s a rich melding of two fine coffees. And when you buy this bag of Kentucky Dream, you are partnering with Heine Brothers’ as we donate $1 of every bag sold to The Forecastle Foundation.
What’s special about the Forecastle Foundation?
The Forecastle Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization working to protect the world’s “natural awesome” by partnering with organizations taking great strides to protect biologically-rich hot spots across the globe. These hot spots represent the richest and most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life on Earth. They cover just 2.3 percent of the Earth’s land surface, yet are home to 77 percent of all vertebrate species and 50 percent of the world’s plant life. Heine Brothers’ is pursuing our Kentucky Dream by partnering with the Forecastle Foundation to support it’s work right here in Kentucky: with Kentucky Natural Lands Trust on Pine Mountain in Eastern Kentucky and with the Nature Conservancy on the Green River in Central Kentucky.
