Three Avocados is a non-profit organization that was founded in February of 2010 as a creative solution to ending the global water crisis, starting with Uganda. 100% of our net proceeds provide clean water. We aim to provide coffee lovers with a product that enables them to make a 100% socially responsible choice when purchasing coffee.
Three Avocados is a non-profit organization formed by a group of Christians after a mission trip to Uganda in January 2010.
