For a Common Cause
“For a Common Cause” is our way of giving back to local communities and regional causes. Every month a member of the CMCR team nominates both a coffee and a cause close to their heart, with $2 from every 250g bag of that coffee sold being donated to the chosen cause.

The Cause: Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics
Migrant workers are some of the bravest people I know, travelling to foreign countries with foreign cultures, sacrificing comfort and safety for a chance to better their lives and the lives of the family they left at home. They are so often the hardest working members of society, doing the jobs that the local populations won’t do, and are too often poorly treated and marginalised. HOME aims to support these individuals through a variety of assistance programs and community engagement. To learn more about the work done by HOME, head to their website here.
The Coffee: Pilha, Brazil
The English translation for Pilha is "Pile" , referencing how this delicious coffee has been naturally processed. Rather than being spread thinly, the cherries are heaped in to small mounds which increases heat and in turn, fermentation, resulting in enhanced fruit flavours developing.
Tasting Notes: Delicate Florals with Hints of Ripe Cherry, and a Chocolatey Finish.
