Three years ago, Claire Vaughan created Rescue coffee with the mission of making a meaningful difference through something we love, coffee.
"I have always wanted to own my own business, but it was really important to me that it gave back and supported the local communities around it. Rescue Coffee Co. does just that. Like you, we care deeply about animal welfare and believe in the human spirit to add meaning and value to everything we do- even our morning cup of coffee!" ☕️
There are 5 elements that go into making your morning cup of Rescue Coffee thoughtful and meaningful:
Organic coffee is produced without the aid of artificial chemical substances, such as certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides. The coffee farm's fertilizer must be 100% organic. As a bonus our decaf is made with the Swiss Water process, which is 100% chemical free and removes 99.9% of caffeine.
By making the choice to purchase Rescue Coffee, you're also making the choice to give farmers fair wages. Our network of co-op farmers grow specialty beans, which are then small batch roasted in Nova Scotia. From loving hands, our premium coffee is thoughtfully crafted and brought right to your door!
We know that our big, beautiful planet is just as important as the people and animals who inhabit it. Our bags are Omnidegradable, which means; Biodegrades in Oceans, Lakes, Soil, Home Composts, Landfills, Swamps, Forests, etc. The bags will revert to their original elements harmlessly, quickly and completely and are beneficial to plant growth!
We try to keep our donations as close to where you purchased from as possible. If you purchase our coffee from a retailer in Nova Scotia, your donation will go to our Nova Scotia rescue partner. Same idea for purchases in New Brunswick, PEI and Ontario. While your donations may no be going to the rescue organization down the street, you can feel confident knowing that you’re supporting a registered charity as close to you as we can get, and all within Canada! Rescue Coffee is roasted at Nova Coffee: a small batch family-owned roaster in Nova Scotia!
"As you could probably guess, I love animals. When I was a child, I was always finding homeless or lost cats and dogs that I would bring home in hopes of being able to keep them. Usually they were in very sad states- malnourished, dirty, and sometimes injured. Most of the time we would be able to find the rightful owner of the lost pet, but the thought of a cat or dog never being able to have the love they deserve by being cared for in a forever home broke my heart." - Claire. Now, Rescue Coffee promotes animal welfare and donates 10% of all proceeds to partnering animal rescue organizations!
By making the choice to purchase Rescue Coffee, you're also making the choice to give farmers fair wages, support local businesses, help the planet, and give a rescue animal a second chance at life. From all of us whom you support, we thank you.
