Origin Story

Ismael Hassen Aredo (Ethiopia)
Koperasi Ketiara (Women Producers) (Sumatra)

Tanya Holland’s California Soul Blend is built around a pair of coffees from the Kayon Mountain Estate in Southern Guji, Ethiopia. The first is a natural processed coffee that gives the blend a fruit-forward character, and the second is a vibrant, fully-washed coffee that contributes brightness and subtle floral notes. We complete the blend with a coffee from the Ketiara Cooperative in the Gayo Mountain region of Sumatra’s Aceh Province. Our coffee, affectionately known as Queen Ketiara, is grown by the group’s women producers. This full bodied and earthy coffee balances out the more nuanced Ethiopian coffees to create a complex and versatile blend with just the right amount of fruit presence.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

$1 from every 12oz bag of California Soul, and $2 from every 2lb bag is donated directly to Mandela Partners to fund programs that build community power through food.

Founded in West Oakland in 2004, Mandela Partners was established to fill a gap that was created by deeply rooted inequities – a challenging local food environment, a legacy of redlining and economic disinvestment, and barriers to good jobs and economic opportunities.

Today Mandela Partners approaches these challenges with creativity, joy, and innovation, and uses food as a tool for Black communities and communities of color to build their own wealth, well-being, and opportunities. Their programs include: distributing sustainably grown fruits and vegetables for families facing food insecurity; culinary training for community members facing barriers to employment – with a focus on those returning home after incarceration; wellness education rooted in empowering individuals to redefine their health and celebrate food; and support for small farms and small food businesses owned by people of color.
