In a decision that saddened many in the coffee community, Coffee Kids announced in December that it would suspend its programs. Mike Ebert, in a Dec. 16, 2014, blog post, stated, “The board of directors and staff are completely committed to the mission of Coffee Kids and are thus hopeful that another organization will take on our work. We believe that supporting coffee communities as they solve their own most pressing social problems is the best way to build a more resilient coffee supply chain.”
What the next chapter will be for what remains of the organization remains to be seen. The board is seeking another organization with which to merge. For now, the curious may contact Ebert at email@example.com for updates.
