November 2020 Newsletter
Here are your updates for November from Serve Coffee plus an impact opportunity for Guatemala.
This time of year, our customers are looking for something special to share and enjoy. We have options for those looking for a gift someone can enjoy everyday and for coffees to differentiate your café.
For those of you at home
“The pandemic has hit Starbucks and other breakfast-centric restaurants hard. With more people working and learning from home, many customers are no longer stopping by a cafe as part of their morning routine. In addition, the company’s concentration in urban locations has been a headwind, while store closures have upended its position as the “third place” for consumers, after their homes and offices.’ (Barron’s on Starbuck’s earnings.)
So, what does this mean for you? With cafes closing, finding great coffee can be much more difficult. Get freshly roasted, award winning coffees delivered to the home café of you or the coffee lover in your life with the Serve Coffee Subscriptions.

Impact at Origin – Hurricane Eta, Guatemala
While we in the U.S. were having our election earlier this month, Hurricane Eta struck Nicaragua then dropped torrential rain in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala before ultimately hitting the U.S. General information on Hurricane Eta can be found in this article from Sprudge. Footage of the flooding in Pena Blanca, Honduras, where Beneficio San Vincente is located, showed high water mark was half way up the first story window.
We expect to have other Matthew 25 opportunities in the future, but for now, aid can get to our growers in Guatemala through our import partner, Onyx Coffee importers. If you are interested in contributing to the Onyx GoFundMe campaign now, you can find out more here.
