COFFEE FOR A CAUSE: Barefoot is donating a portion of the proceeds to which seeks to end hunger and poverty by training farmers to regenerate their land. The world loses trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as food systems destroy ecosystems mostly in developing tropic countries.'s 4-year training program leads to the planting of thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. This helps farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables, all while improving the environment. 

Diego Guardia’s family owns Hacienda Sonora which specializes in honey and natural processes. Sonora is reputed for its quality micro-lots, specific varietal and processing separation, and for leaving a positive impact on the environment and people that surround their business. 

Sonora’s coffees grow amongst indigenous trees and other diverse vegetation that provide a great environment for quality and improve the chemistry of soil that’s already naturally rich from volcanic ash. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals make their homes on the land.

All of the energy consumed by the farm is harvested there and 100% renewable, powering the mill and electricity for local workers.
