Ever heard of Coffee Leaf Tea? It's smooth, sustainable, packed with antioxidants, and it's breaking the poverty cycle for coffee farmers. Max Rivest, Co-Founder & CEO of award-winning Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea, shares the company's story that originally started as a grad school project back in 2013.
With an amazingly smooth and lightly sweet taste, Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea offers a subtle caffeine effect similar to green tea. Even more than the incredible health benefits, Wize Monkey is making an amazing impact on communities in Nicaragua. Harvested in the offseason, which is 9 months long, Wize Monkey creates 1,000 year-round jobs on coffee farms, and mitigates seasonal hunger in these communities. This in turn boosts rural education and student retention, as young students do not have to leave school to pursue odd jobs because of a lack of stable income at home.
