Fund Raising with Better Cup Of Joe

So you’re in charge of planning a fundraiser to buy new uniforms for the high school band. Maybe your veterans’ group wants to help a local Wounded Warrior get a much-needed Medical Alert Service dog. No matter what charity or deserving individual or family you are trying to help, successful fundraising requires some unique ideas that are put into motion through careful planning. If you decide to sell a product, make sure it can be ordered by participants easily and it is the most profitable, yielding the highest return to your cause.

Selling coffee is a great idea for a fundraiser because it’s the most consumed beverage on the planet next to water. Over 54% of Americans drink coffee every day according to the Harvard School of Public Health. The folks at Zagat say we are obsessed with coffee, and for many, mornings aren’t complete without at least a cup or two. Fifty-two percent of Americans would rather go without their shower than give up their morning coffee!

Flavorful Organo Gold Coffee is an ideal product for your fundraiser; first because it’s a really good coffee that participants will be proud to sell. Second, you can select the fundraising platform that is the easiest to use when selling. In the more traditional method, coffee is sold directly to friends, relatives, and customers. Payment is collected, and the orders are sent in to the company. The coffee is shipped directly to your organization for distribution to customers.

The second method of selling Organo Gold is a fundraising platform that’s made-to-order for groups that don’t want participants selling door-to-door. Customers purchase their coffee on-line on a special fundraising website. Payment is handled then, and the coffee is shipped directly to the customer. Participants do not have to distribute orders to the purchasers, and at the end of the fundraiser, an agreed percentage of sales will be distributed to your special organization. An important plus is your customers can re-order coffee throughout the year, and your charitable organization will continue to receive its share of the funds.

These two fundraising platforms can be combined for maximum results. When you plan your fundraising campaign, don’t overlook the most important factor – select a product that is important to people, something that is useful and desirable. There’s no better choice than BetterCupOfJoe!

Organo Gold – More Than Just a Cup of Coffee!

In my last posting, I touched on the healthful benefits of drinking coffee. New studies show that coffee has been given a bad rap, and that it actually is good for you!

Organo Gold coffee gives you all the health benefits of coffee, plus an extra boost from the Red Reishi mushroom. Sometimes known by its scientific name, Ganoderma lucidum, this healthy herb has been around for thousands of years and was often recommended for its support to the immune system and liver function. It’s also known as a cardio-tonic herb and has had positive effects on patients with heart and blood pressure problems.

Blended with coffee ground from the finest Arabica beans, Organo Gold makes a delicious cup of brew that packs an extra boost for your health. This coffee is enhanced with an extract of the mushroom, which does not affect the brew’s full-bodied flavor.

Organo Gold coffee is packaged in small packets called “sachets”. There are thirty sachets in each box of coffee, which can be ordered from your local distributor or the company’s website. For the single-cup brewer fans, some varieties of Organo Gold are available in BrewKups.

Organo Gold is available in:

  • Gourmet Black Coffee with Ganoderma Lucidum
  • Premium Gourmet King of Coffee with Ganoderma Lucidum
  • Organo Gold Gourmet Café Noir Black Coffee
  • Organo Gold Café Supreme with Ganoderma Lucidum
  • Organo Gold Gourmet Café Latte with Ganoderma Lucidum
  • Organo Gold Gourmet Café Mocha

Some varieties of Organo Gold coffee are available without the Ganoderma Extract. The company offers different sized packages, and additional savings are available when several boxes are purchased.

With Organo Gold, you get all the healthy benefits of drinking coffee, plus an additional boost. So here’s a toast to your health and a delicious cup of Organo Gold coffee!

We Americans Love Our Coffee

When you pour that first cup of coffee in the morning, you’re joining over 100 million other Americans who will consume 587 million cups of Joe in just one day. The United States is the world’s biggest consumer of coffee, with 83% of adults enjoying the beverage daily. Whether it’s black or laced with cream and sugar, a latte, cappuccino or a bold espresso, this fragrant beverage is the nation’s favorite way to start the day.

The National Coffee Association’s 2013 survey shows that the average person drinks three cups of java daily. One-third of these coffee drinkers consume gourmet coffees brewed from custom blends of exotic beans. Americans are becoming more educated about where their coffee was grown, how it was blended, roasted and brewed.

The new single-cup brewers have brought the coffee-shop into the home. Sales of these machines are up from $103 million in 2007 to $11.8 billion in 2012. Now coffee aficionados can sample different blends, roasts and flavored coffee in small doses, thanks to the K- Cups, the vacuum packed containers of pre-measured coffee. Mom can have her cup of hazelnut coffee, while Dad can enjoy his decaf blend, and Junior can slurp his hot chocolate. There’s no waste, cleanup is easy, and everyone has their choice of beverage. The Organo Gold Coffee Company recently began packaging some of its most popular blends in BrewKups, which also produce delicious coffee in the single-cup machines.

Some coffee companies are marketing pre-measured portion packs of ground coffee that are ideal for use with 10 to 12 cup coffee brewers. This takes the guesswork out of making coffee and presents a consistent cup of java. Organo Gold offers small packets of instant coffee, ideal for a single cup once hot water is added. This cup of Joe is full of flavor and packed with plenty of healthful benefits from the Red Reishi Mushroom, whose botanical name is Ganoderma Lucidum. Long valued by Chinese and Japanese herbalists, use of this beneficial mushroom dates back over 4000 years. Organo Gold’s fine coffee is enhanced with an extract of this mushroom, adding a healthy boost to your delicious cup of Joe.

What Gives Coffee Its Flavor?

Ever wonder why the various roasts and blends of coffee taste so very differently from one another? Some coffees, like Organo Gold, whose rich, full flavor comes from roasted Arabica coffee beans are perfect for that morning cup; while others taste sharp or bitter, and are not pleasing. Some of these flavor differences are due to the unique character of the beans. The way the coffee plant was grown and how the beans were processed, also has a great effect upon the flavor. There are two types of beans used to make coffee today: Arabica and Robusta.

Arabica coffee beans

Over two-thirds of the world’s coffee beans produced are Arabica, which are usually grown at higher altitudes in tropical or sub-tropical climates. Before roasting, Arabica beans have a sweet smell, reminiscent of blueberries. Generally, these beans are the most flavorful and produce the best coffee.

Robusta coffee beans

These beans contain about twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans, and they often have a bitter, woody, burnt rubber taste. The plants are hardy, disease resistant and produce a larger crop than the Arabica. Robusta beans are used in the cheaper, super-market blends. When you take time to read the labels on coffee packages, you’ll find robusta beans in Italian roasts and espresso blends. When brewed, this bean produces the frothy layer on top of the cup which is called “crema”.


Growing Factors that Affect Coffee’s Flavor

  • Elevation
  • Type of soil
    • Limestone, volcanic ash with pumice or clay, acidic soil
  • Climate
    • Temperature
    • Humidity
    • Amount of rainfall
  • Care of the crop
    • Was it raised organically?
    • Did the plants grow in the shade?
    • Were chemical fertilizers used?
    • Were pesticides used?

Methods of harvesting

The harvesting of the coffee beans, which are called “cherries”, affects their taste, which you’ll notice in your cup of java. If the fully ripened cherries are hand-picked, their flavor will be full-bodied and mellow. Mechanical picking simply strips the cherries from the coffee plants, harvesting both under-ripened yellow and green berries along with the ripe, red cherries. This produces an inferior coffee with a sharp, unpleasant taste. When over-ripe, black cherries are added to the blend, the result is a bitter, strong brew.

As you try different coffees, blends, and roasts, you’ll learn to identify various tastes and flavors, and you’re bound to develop an appreciation of rich, delicious Organo Gold.

Have a Healthy Cup of Joe!

So just what is this Organo Gold coffee? You don’t see it on the shelves in the grocery with the other name brands, and it’s not available in your favorite coffee shops. This flavorful blend of roasted Arabica coffee beans, which makes a deliciously complex cup of Joe, is ordered directly from your local distributor or from the company’s website.

Recent studies on coffee have concluded that the health benefits of drinking this beverage are very impressive. That cup of Joe can decrease the likelihood that you’ll develop Parkinson’s Disease or Alzheimer’s. The caffeine in coffee perks up your memory and revs up your metabolism. Several medical journals recently reported new studies which show that drinking coffee can decrease the risk of developing diabetes by as much as 50 per cent!

These beneficial properties of coffee have been enhanced in the blends produced by Organo Gold. Specially selected Arabica beans are carefully roasted and then infused with an extract of the Red Reishi mushroom, which is well-known for its healthful effects on the body. Valued for thousands of years by Asian herbalists, it was referred to as the mushroom of immortality, and it was eaten exclusively by royalty. This rare mushroom was believed to support the immune system, decrease environmental stress, promote restful sleep and enhance over-all health.

So that cup of Joe that starts your day or gives you a boost when the time begins to drag is really good for you! And if your cup of coffee is Organo Gold, the health benefits are increased. It’s your perfect cup of Joe!

Welcome to a Better Cup of Joe!

Welcome to a Better Cup of Joe! 

We’re so very excited to introduce you to our Better Cup of Joe. My wife and I were introduced to it by one of my favorite football players from my favorite NFL team and we’ve been hooked ever since. My wife, Stephanie, is from Seattle originally so she knows a thing or two about coffee. Stephanie has been drinking the same brand of coffee since she was 15 years old. After her first cup, she made the switch and has never looked back. Not only does our coffee taste better than any other we’ve tried, but it’s also less acidic than other brands and that makes my tummy very happy.

Our goal is to introduce the world to what we think is a Better Cup of Joe.

Our mission is to give back to our community while doing it.

Thank you for joining us!
