CENTRALongmont will place orders for coffee from Café Justo at a price of $10/lb or $40/5lbs. Place your order on the signup sheet in the Fellowship Hall, or online via this form.
The Benefits of Buying Café Justo
- The coffee is organically grown, is delicious, and a good value
- ALL revenues go to the grower’s Cooperative in Chiapas
- It allows the coffee farmers to remain in their homeland.
- The Café Justo drinker helps support development of new spin-off jobs and economic development south of the border.
- By allowing co-op members to stay home and earn a "just wage," Café Justo addresses the double tragedies of families split apart by migration to the United States and of migrants dying in the desert trying to get here.
Mark Adams and Miriam Maldonado are mission co-workers with the Presbyterian Border Ministry in Agua Prieta, Mexico, where Mark has served since 1998. As US coordinator of the bi-national ministry, Frontera de Cristo, Mark is responsible, in partnership with Jocabed Gallegos, Mexican Coordinator of Frontera de Cristo, for the coordination of the six ministry areas of Frontera de Cristo. Miriam connects people and organizations across borders and serves as a liaison of Frontera de Cristo with the Center for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation and Recuperation (CRREDA in Spanish), DouglaPrieta Trabaja and the Lirio de los Valles Presbyterian Church. She works with DouglaPrieta to help the rehabilitation centers and families of the church, community and schools grow their own food, increasing their nutrition possibilities and connection to God’s creation and one another.

Help Make burritos! - This is a 2 hour commitment about every 6 weeks. We gather to cook, assemble burritos, and clean! We even have fun catching up on what's happening in our lives. We make about 250 burritos each time.
