We Support Manatees

Manatee Gourmet Coffee gives at least 10% of our net profits to support manatees and their habitats.

Manatee Gourmet Coffee takes great pride in sourcing, blending, and roasting the finest coffees to create our signature smooth taste. But we also fundamentally believe in giving back to nonprofits who have made the most significant impact on the preservation of manatees. As the original "Coffee with a Cause," our donations are integral to our brand, and we are proud to make donations to a growing number of environmentally-centered nonprofits every year.

Manatee Gourmet Coffee donates to award-winning national nonprofit organizations and research institutions that make the most significant impact on supporting manatees and their habitats. Each year we commit to giving to each of the nonprofits featured on our About Our Cause page. We also seek to donate to other organizations that may not be featured if they find ways to mitigate the effects of climate change on marine life.

Manatee Gourmet Coffee aims to maximize the impact of its charitable donations. To that end, we make an annual assessment of both the organizations we support and how they are supporting manatees and their habitats. After this evaluation, we determine how to apportion our charitable giving based on need and impact. We give incremental preference to organizations actively working to mitigate and reverse the effects of how human-related activities have harmed manatees.
