Pachamama Coffee is honored to have been included in Wordpress.Com's 2019 “Anything is Possible List”, a compilation of entrepreneurs and individuals leveraging the internet to ignite change within their communities and around the world.
The list features changemakers from all walks of life, each of whom saw a need and thought outside the box for a solution. From a 12-year-old who started and operates her town’s only newspaper to a single mother threatened with homelessness who made a career blogging about her experiences, each of the stories collected reflects the impact that ideas can have when they are met with the right tools: in this case, a Wordpress site.
Our online operations have been hosted by Wordpress since the beginning. With the flexibility offered by the platform, telling our story in a visually compelling and accessible way was as easy as sitting down with our laptop and a cup of coffee. Thanks to our website at www.pacha.coop , we are able to connect our patrons with the farmers that own our company through a coffee C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) program. A coffee drinker in North America does not have to look further than our site to sign on as a continued supporter of small scale coffee farmers in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Peru.
The accounts given on the Anything is Possible list are proof that when a dream is given a platform, the world becomes a better place. We are humbled to join this list. Ours is just one of many stories of a desire to shake up the status quo, speak up for those who have been marginalized, and create and more equitable future for humankind.
