Coffee for Literacy is an initiative started to fund literacy projects in a sustainable way. The Coffee for Literacy project is one of the funding branches of the non-profit Sustainable Literacy. Sustainable Literacy is a faith based non-profit that is dedicated to bridging the literacy gap. The Coffee for Literacy project started in August of 2017 when Martin Coffeehouse opened in Martin, Tennessee.


Wherever your cup of inspiration may lead you, know that with each cup of Martin Coffeehouse brews you are supporting both local and global initiatives. Martin Coffeehouse donates 10 cents from every cup to Sustainable Literacy for their literacy projects in Nepal and Kenya. Sustainable Literacy bridges the literacy gap through school supplies, letters of encouragement, and libraries in rural areas. Learn more about Sustainable Literacy by clicking HERE. So order a french press for the table, chart your next course in your journal, and stay a while!
