Brooksville, Florida (October 31, 2014) – All of Live Oak Theatre performances of Anne of Avonlea, the Musical will feature “A Cup of Organic” coffee. Each of Live Oak Theatre’s performances are dessert theater experiences featuring dessert, and coffee or tea. This season “A Cup of Organic” will be featured at all of its shows. “A Cup of Organic” is the vision of Douglas Torres and Peter Davidson. They are located at 28253 Darby in Dade City. Call 813-546-6659 for directions. They will prepare and serve coffee for all performances.
Doug Torres and Peter Davidson, the owners, are both hard working individuals who were successful in their careers but realized they needed to make a change in their lives that could better the lives of millions. This growing, God-given passion gave birth to a company that would allow them to give back money to churches, missions, and ministries, and create jobs in Doug’s hometown in Honduras. They decided that the organic coffee fields run by Doug’s family in Honduras would be the launching pad for their business. Doug’s brother, Juan Torres, was very touched when presented with the idea to create a coffee company that would raise money for churches and people in need, as well as provide jobs in his town. Juan quickly joined as a partner and began the start-up process in Honduras, which included creating the packaging, roasting the coffee, and producing the first full order.
The coffee is all certified organic, grown in a small village in the high mountains of the state Comayagua and has motivated many coffee farmers to apply more responsible and healthier organic processes. The Fair Trade Market helps to achieve better training conditions and promote sustainability.
A Cup of Organic has directly partnered with the farmers to provide them with truly fair compensation. A Cup of Organic is a leader in the attempt to provide to farmers compensation that has been denied them for years. A Cup of Organic helped and encouraged the farmers to process, roast, and package their own coffee in order to bring true social, economic and environmental sustainability to their communities. When you drink a Cup of Organic, you can be assured that you are blessing the ones who work hard to provide you a natural, delicious organic coffee.
