Benefit for Bricks to Bread

August 29

During July, our events coordinator Gaby spent two weeks in Purisil, Costa Rica working with Bricks to Bread, an organization that builds brick ovens in rural communities for women who are seeking a sustainable source of income. She and a group of volunteers built an oven for Angelica Serranos-Vindas and her family.

This month, just 3 weeks after Angelica’s oven was completed, a massive flood has destroyed her home and much of the village of Purisil. She and her family lost everything, and authorities told them they can’t rebuild on that land. The oven will never be used, and they will need to relocate. 

We’ll be donating 10% of our cafe proceeds this Monday 8/29 to the Emergency Relief Fund set up for Angelica and her family. If you’d like to donate yourself, the link is here and in our linktree.
