Just Love Coffee

Our fundraising storefront is up for Just Love Coffee! Click on the logo above to go to our store, or visit this link: You can order some pretty cool tees, hats and other gear if you aren't a coffee drinker. Coffee is a great holiday gift, so stock up for those last-minute gifts to the postman, hairdresser, teachers, and other service providers. Thanks for visiting our store!
We are about five thousand dollars away from having all the money together to pay for Sarge's adoption. For every bag of coffee sold in our storefront, we will receive $5. We also receive a portion of the proceeds from the other products like t-shirts. We are very thankful that Rob Webb created Just Love Coffee to help families raise money for adoptions while providing a great product!

P.S. Below is the "about us" narrative from the website. It explains the background for Just Love Coffee.

"Rob Webb knows coffee. When Rob was two years old, his father started Webb's Coffee Service, which blossomed into a full-blown refreshment service supplying businesses in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas, and is now run by Rob.
Rob Webb knows the adoption process. In the summer of 2008, Rob and his wife Emily were called to adopt from Ethiopia. After much prayer and discussion with their first two children they started their adoption journey in August 2008. During the flurry of paperwork and preparation, Rob & Emily read books not only on adoption in general, but specifically on Ethiopia. Learning that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee caught Rob's attention, and after reading about the living conditions and wages of the average coffee farmer, he was compelled to take action. What developed through his reading and his trip to Ethiopia to unite with his daughters was a realization that he could combine his expertise and longstanding desire to roast his own coffees with his desire to help others. Just Love Coffee Roasters was born! Roasting Fair Trade Specialty coffees, Just Love uses proceeds to help an Ethiopian orphanage and families adopting not just from Ethiopia, but from anywhere in the world."
