MotMot Coffee, a Seattle University student-run business, and the Seattle University Vietnamese Student Association, will be launching their newest premium coffee, Tâm, on November 19, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Seattle University bookstore.
MotMot Coffee is proudly fair trade and employs ethical business sourcing in its operations. ‘We strive to fix the industry issue where farmers are only paid 6 cents per cup of coffee by cutting out the middle man and giving farmers the resources they need,’ says Andrew Gao, vice president of marketing for MotMot. ‘Ethical business starts with awareness and we are just trying to spread our message while offering amazing coffee at the same time.’
MotMot is the name of Nicaragua’s national bird. MotMot Coffee works with Nicaraguan coops where coffee farmers are paid upfront.
The launch party is open to the public.
