Started in 2018, Bears Brew Back supports the Nicaraguan families that grow the single-origin coffee we serve in our restaurants. The program provides support for infrastructure, medical and educational-focused activities. Beginning as an internal program, it quickly gained momentum. Today, our guests can support this important endeavor by purchasing bags of the 100% Nicaraguan coffee at our Diners, with all profits going to fund Bears Brew Back initiatives.
Our first project is well pump improvement and piping construction. This new system will bring easily accessible running water to the homes in Mancotal, a community where many of our beans are grown. Bears Brew Back is also funding a medical care van to visit this relatively remote village where routine medical care is not available and providing school supplies to the children.
