Now more than ever it is important to show your support to local and small businesses. By supporting local and small businesses you are putting money back into your own neighborhoods and communities, supporting entrepreneurs, and creating jobs. On average local businesses donate more to nonprofits and have a smaller carbon footprint than larger companies.
Sounds like those small business facts are spot on!
Did you know that Kuju donates 1% of sales to the National Park Foundation and we offer a carbon neutral delivery?
What is better than supporting a local small business or brand? A 2-for-1 Deal. Below are three local San Francisco based companies who offer great products, including Kuju pour over coffee:

Let me start with reminding you that Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21st this year. Man Crates is a one stop shop for a gift for any guy in your life - and trust me, guys, you are not as easy to shop for as you might think. Our favorite item of course, the Coffee Lovers Crate, featuring Kuju's Bold Awakening Travel 5-pack.
Rainbow Grocery Co-op
Grocery shopping is essential, so why not support a local business at the same time. Never tried Kuju? This is the perfect location to grab a single-serve pour over coffee pouch to try at home! Choose from our top three roasts: Basecamp Blend, Bold Awakening and Angels Landing.

Just pick out your gift box, upload a few of your favorite photos and choose a unique gift item. We of course, suggest our Ethiopia Pour Over Coffee featured as a “Foodie” gift. After all, everyone loves a good cup of Joe!
