Kaape Coffee is the finest coffee available in Guatemala, fair-traded, FDA approved and simply delicious. The majority of the proceeds from Kaape’s sales go to support Partner for Surgery http://partnerforsurgery.org which provides free medical care to the impoverished rural areas of Guatemala. Additionally, part of the proceeds support schooling for the farm workers in Guatemala. Lori Foster, a ’74 alumna of Thunderbird, founded Kaape to help Partner for Surgery continue their work.

There are so many stories to share with you. This is just the first of many. Please know that the photos are of real people, taken within the last 30-120 days. They are photos of rural Guatemalans who will be undergoing surgery in the next few weeks. This surgery, performed by doctors and nurses who volunteer their time to make this happen, will literally change the lives of each patient. We will try to show you how this otherwise unaffordable medical attention, so needed and appreciated by these beautiful people, impacts their lives and the lives of their families.
