Coffee for Good: Caffè Vergnano for Funtasia

Coffee for Good: Caffè Vergnano for Funtasia

What if we told you that you could start your day by doing good...simply with a sip of your morning caffè?

Start by picking up a new rainbow-colored tin of Funtasia coffee from Caffè Vergnano, the oldest Italian roasting company, then read on to find out more about this bright new project between the non-profit arm of the education social enterprise Funtasia, founded by social entrepreneur and model Elisa Sednaoui, and Caffè Vergnano.

FOSTERING SOCIO-EMOTIONAL GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWERMENT

For this special edition tin, Elisa Sednaoui and Caffè Vergnano wanted to create something that is as bright as the mission of Funtasia itself. The non-profit creates innovative learning spaces and experiences that teach cultural exchange, citizenship, and equality in children and young adults in classrooms around the world, and enables youth to self-realize themselves in happy solution-makers.

Through hands-on learning processes, Funtasia focuses on giving students and teachers the tools to foster gender empowerment and racial equality from a young age – right from within the classroom. Want to learn more about the project? Follow @funtasiaeducation and @caffèvergnano1882 on Instagram.

CELEBRATING WOMEN IN COFFEE

The special edition Funtasia coffee is the newest addition to the Pink Collection, Caffè Vergnano's social sustainability project Women in Coffee. Women in Coffee (WIC) is a charity and fundraising project conceived by Caffè Vergnano in 2018, expressing values that start from the cup and speak of empowerment, inclusion, and respect.

GRAB A TIN FOR GOOD

The best part? A portion of all proceeds from this special edition tin will go directly to Funtasia, making a real difference in many lives around the world. The optimal grind to make drip or Moka coffee at home, this coffee has a delicate sweet flavor and rounded aroma, finely balanced from the slow roasting of nine of the finest Arabica varieties from Central and South America.

Arabica Coffee is the most prestigious type of coffee. Vergnano Arabica is a product with a delicate flavor and smooth aroma which is created by the slow roasting of only the very best varieties of Arabica from Central and South America. The slow roasting of Vergnano Arabica coffee makes it perfectly balanced with a medium, rounded flavor and sweet aroma. A great blend also for the most demanding connoisseurs with a low caffeine content, it's even ideal for an evening caffè after dinner.
