One fall evening a friend sat in our living room with her face in her hands, lamenting, "I just can't feed them all. I have no choice. I must turn some away." Over the previous three years Anne had done remarkable work rescuing girls from human trafficking overseas. But on this night she was weary from the pain of not being able to do more.
The joy we shared in her successes was quickly dissipated by the overwhelming need that remained. At this moment, we decided to do more. By January 2016, Coletti Coffee was born.
Our mission is to provide such an incredible coffee experience that we can fund Anne and others like her. 100% of our profits are given to those doing justice in the 10/40 window. Period.
More specifically, we seek to fund small non-profits—with low overhead—as well as social entrepreneurs who have demonstrated success in relieving physical, social, and spiritual poverty through job creation, income generation, education, training, and the promotion of religion – in our case, the Christian faith.
Josh is a West Point graduate and army Chaplain. In 2016, he received his masters at Columbia International University where he studied intelligent cross-cultural giving.
Katie is a Naval Academy Graduate and former Marine Corps officer. She is the real brains behind the operation.
Together we have six beautiful daughters (and counting).
May your skies be blue, your friends be true, and your coffee fresh!
