One company has woven a pro-life message into their motto, the name of their product, and into their giving!
Seven Weeks Coffee is both pro-coffee and pro-life. Now, according to this interview by The Daily Citizen, they are donating “ten percent of every sale to pregnancy resource centers — the same facilities domestic terrorists/abortion activists have been firebombing and Senator Elizabeth Warren has been calling to eliminate.”
Anton Krecic, founder and owner of Seven Weeks Coffee, “says the company’s mission is ‘to promote Godly values, provide excellent coffee, and protect every beating heart.'”
The article also states that “in just over eight months of operation, Seven Weeks Coffee, which is based in a Washington D.C. suburb, has donated over $15,000.”
The company’s website explains their unusual name this way: “At seven weeks of development a baby is the size of a coffee bean — and for the first time, a heartbeat is clearly detectable.”
Seven Weeks Coffee explains that their coffee is “specialty grade, single-origin and harvested from small lot farms from the award-winning region of Sidama, Ethiopia.” It is sourced transparently through direct trade and they pay farmers double what is required by fair trade.
The Daily Citizen added to it’s report this observation from the owner: “‘It’s really hard to buy products from companies that align with our values,” Krecic said.
“One of the things I like to say is we’re not asking for a donation. We’re saying, if you drink coffee, but would consider drinking it through us, we’re going to have a really big impact in defending life and protecting the unborn.”
In the wake of the Supreme Court decision about Roe v. Wade, some large companies were proactive in their efforts to support abortion for their employees. Seven Weeks Coffee is making a powerful statement that businesses can also use their products, platforms, and profits to support life — life of the unborn and the lives of hard-working coffee growers in Ethiopia.
