Coffee and community. The perfect blend.

Great communities are like great coffee: Robust. Strong. And rich in local flavor. That’s why we serve together and grow together — making our communities places we all want to work and live. We give every employee paid volunteer time and matching donations to support organizations they’re passionate about. So it’s not just a company connection — it’s personal.

Strengthening the bonds in our community.

Volunteerism is core to our culture. So within our Community Action for Employees (CAFE) program, our employees get 52 paid hours of volunteer time every year to lend a hand in their communities. We amplify their efforts by providing sponsorships, donating product to local non-profit organizations, and matching employee donations to qualifying organizations.

Serve.

For years we’ve helped Holy Joe’s Café send coffee to military bases around the world. In fiscal 2017 we donated more than 3 million cups of coffee — serving a little bit of home to those who serve so bravely.

Grow.

Vermont employees partnered with The Nature Conservancy and the Department of Fish and Wildlife to plant 300 trees that act as filters to remove pollutants on Lake Champlain’s Malletts Bay.

Serving those who serve our country.

Pease Greeters

Every month hundreds of military personnel arrive and depart through the doors of Pease International Airport. It’s an emotional time for both our troops and their families — and we’re proud to support them.

In 2017, Pease Greeters helped welcome 265 flights — serving coffee to approximate 53,000 military personnel.

REVV® Coffee and Purple Heart Homes

Our REVV® Coffee is as strong as it gets — but nothing compares to the strength of our military personnel. We’re proud to have partnered with Purple Heart Homes in 2017 to help renovate kitchens — complete with a coffee corner and Keurig® brewer — for veterans who were disabled while serving our country.

Jumping in to help.

There was plenty of mud, sweat, and teamwork as 428 Keurig employees worked to build more sustainable waterways in their communities. It was part of our 13th annual, company-wide river cleanup through the American River’s National River Cleanup® initiative. This year, we pulled 16,000 pounds of trash and 154 tires from our rivers. We planted 100 native shrubs. Spread 100 cubic yards of mulch. Built rain gardens. And restored river parks and beaches.

Every great cup of coffee starts with clean water. Our employees know this by heart, which makes our annual water restoration event one of our most popular volunteer efforts.

Pouring our hearts out for Houston.

In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, when rescue workers were exhausted and discouraged, we made sure they got a taste of home with a hot cup of coffee — whether it was to kick-start their mornings or enjoy a moment of reprieve at the end of a long day. We partnered with Compass Canteen to provide coffee at the George Brown Convention Center, along with sending coffee to the American Red Cross headquarters in Virginia to aid in the overall relief efforts for Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
