World Coffee Aid

World Coffee Aid is a better alternative to other socially responsible organisations who want to give something sustainable back to the World. World Coffee Aid - WCA for short - is a 100% Australasian run initiative.

You make the choice WHICH charity you want WCA to donate to. It doesn't necessarily need to be coffee related. It can be as local as your own neighbourhood or city, or as International as The Fred Hollows Foundation or OXFAM's program for goat ownership in Malawi.

You can give as much or as little as you like through WCA. The amount of donation is not limited.

100% of your donation goes straight to the cause. The benefit of donating through WCA is that you get to choose the cause you want to support.

Direct Trade

What does Direct Trade mean? It means FRESH & DIRECT!

It's a Direct Line from Grower to Roaster or a Direct Line from Roaster to Barista! When we have a Direct Line from Grower to Roaster, the farmer gets a better price and the roasters get a fresher product.
You get the freshest roasted coffee available. It doesn't cost anymore, because the extra cost of direct delivery can be offset by direct buying cost savings. There is no added cost to you. No time wasted.

No Middle Men. Just Direct Trade! It's as simple as that.
