Mokafe Coffee

Mokafe Moments

Introducing Mokafe Coffee Now Available at Hy-Vee!

            Haiti is coming to the Heartland! The tastiest cup of the Caribbean is now available for purchase at Hy-Vee in Olathe, Kansas. Mokafe Coffee is excited to partner with Hy-Vee and showcase our line of premium ground coffee products in the aisles of our first grocery store. This is one big step for Haiti as our rich gourmet coffee is introduced to more coffee drinkers in the UnitedStates.

            A Renaissance of Haitian coffee is happening right before our eyes. Through our partnership with Hy-Vee, Mokafe Coffee will make one of the treasures of Haiti come alive in kitchens across the Midwest. A mellow, delicious cup of coffee brewed from our Beaumont Tradition beans now comes straight from your grocery store, making enjoying Mokafe easier than ever before.

              Hy-Vee’s mission is “making lives easier, healthier, happier,” which aligns with the dream that initially brought Mokafe to life. By carrying our coffee in their stores, Hy-Vee is following through on its commitment to make lives easier not only for its customers, but for our Haitian farmers as well. Since Hy-Vee is based in Iowa—the state that popularized the slogan “America Needs Farmers”—we know that Hy-Vee’s commitment to empowering local farmers and local communities comes from a deep understanding of the importance of farming and the unique
skills involved. Through working with Mokafe, Hy-Vee shows their dedication to providing more sustainable livelihoods for farmers globally. This partnership truly exemplifies how we, as a global community, can make smart purchasing choices to help communities thrive.

            However, solely supporting the farmers is not enough. At Mokafe, we know how crucial healthy soil is to creating delicious coffee, and we know how precious the environment in Haiti is to those who live off the land. That’s why we’re committed to respecting and protecting Haiti’s agriculture and environment by donating part of our proceeds to sustainability organizations in Haiti. Hy-Vee stands alongside us on sustainability concerns as well.

            Hy-Vee’s sustainability mission, “to promote the well-being of our customers, employees, communities and the global environment,” impeccably aligns with Mokafe’s commitment to environmental restoration and respect. It only makes sense to bring Mokafe Coffee to a store that aligns with the values we hold so dear. This partnership with Hy-Vee is only the beginning of a lasting relationship built on a mutual respect for human dignity, environmental protection, and superb customer service.

            Our gourmet ground coffee varieties—specifically, the Beaumont Tradition, Cap Rouge Chocolate, Tanboo Caramel, and La Perle Vanilla products—will first be available at the Olathe Hy-Vee (the 14955 W. 151st St location) and will be expanding to a store near you. Check the coffee aisle, and if you can’t find Mokafe at your local Hy-Vee, be sure to request it from a manager. Don’t forget to add a bag to your shopping list!
