April Collaboration: Rescue Me Coffee Company
We are really excited to share with you our April collaboration with Rescue Me Coffee Company! Lenka Tinka, founder of Natura Culina has been friends with Suzanne Maury and Patrick Bietz of Rescue Me Coffee Company for many years. Their hearts are golden just like their coffee and we can’t wait for you to have the chance to hear about their brand and their story. Transparency, sustainability, and quality are high on their priority list, making them a company that we admire in more ways than one!
First, tell us a little bit about yourself and your company.
Our names are Suzanne Maury and Patrick Bietz – we have owned Top Dog Coffee Bar for 12 years in Morro Bay CA – We started our online coffee subscription business last August – Rescue Me Coffee Company because we wanted to be a difference for positive change
What inspired you to start your company?
We love coffee and knew we wanted to do something to give back — but were not quite sure until we went to a New Life K9s graduation and saw the service dogs being handed from the inmates to the Veterans and First Responders – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house at the prison and we knew right then we had to get on board to help put more pups thru the New Life K9s program and see them graduate and go to the hands of Veterans and First Responders with PTSD
What are the 3 main values that you aim to promote through your company?
Build a community of customers that really understand that together, we can be a guiding light to veterans and first responders– Give back on a level that few private businesses do– truly be able to give to actually make a difference Share our love with others for these programs– they really make such and incredible difference in so many lives- encourage involvement
Who is your ideal customer?
Our ideal customer is a person who loves coffee and wants to give back at the same time – to 2 special non profits –
Can you tell us about the charities that your company gives back to? Why did you choose those specific companies?
New Life K9s and C.A.R.E.4paws are our 2 non profits we are partnering with – we donate 20% of every bag of coffee shipped to the non profit of the customers choice – they pick the one they want to support at check out – With these 2 nonprofits we feel like we are covering 2 ends of just one spectrum – keeping the shelter dog/cat count down on the central coast thru helping and educating the low income families thru Care4paws and also helping our Veterans and First Responders with PTSD – we know first hand the service dogs are lowering their medications and therefor being able to function in their lives!
