Blue Nile Traders buys and sells coffee Ethiopian coffee, and sends 100% of the profits to Ethiopia to support the Yezelalem Minch feeding program. Each bag of Blue Nile sold helps feed orphans at Yezelalem Minch!
Blue Nile is a 100% volunteer operation, a literal “mom and pop” venture: Mom and Dad with 3 adult sons, 6 grandchildren (including 2 refugees from Eritrea) and 5-soon-to-be-6 teenagers (including 3 adopted from Ethiopia and one “on the way”, and two refugees from Central America).
Better than fair trade!
Blue Nile is even more than a fair trade brand. A fair trade brand pays farmers/producers a fair and living wage, but in most cases also makes a profit for the distributor. Blue Nile Traders is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization. Blue Nile works in partnership with Bethany Christian Services, and all profits are donated to Yezelalem Minch.
