Waking up and opening the eyes is often the first hurdle most people face in the morning. Rolling out of bed and taking a step in the right direction is the second. A daily motivation for many individuals is coffee.
That concept was in the back of our minds as a metaphor and inspiration for the creation of Eye Opener, a brand new blend from Beacon Coffee Company and Everybody’s Hungry. Eye Opener represents a joint celebration of passion; passion for sharing a great cup of coffee and giving back to the community. Leveraging the coffee in a similar manner as starting the day, Eye Opener helps raise awareness and open eyes to the fight against hunger in Ventura County.
A portion of each cup served and bag sold helps FOOD Share of Ventura County’s fight to end hunger and increase self-sufficiency. One dollar per pound roasted and distributed is being donated directly to FOOD Share and their efforts. By enjoying fresh brewed Eye Opener, you’re helping put food on someone’s table.
Soft launched into the market at the beginning of July, the blend features three high grown South American coffees expertly roasted to accentuate delicate sweetness, stone fruit and herbaceous notes.
The coffee was celebrated at an official release party in the FOOD Share warehouse on July 21st and is available at the Beacon Coffee roasting plant/cafe, their wholesale partners listed below, as well as online. Grab a bag today for a delicious cup of coffee and chance to make a difference in the community.
