I am Jen, from East Aurora. I registered my group for fundraising, it is a small group, the East Aurora Tennis Boosters. Hopefully we will sell a lot.

Matias, hi. It was great seeing you again this summer during our Costa Rica trip. I know that my students really enjoyed our visit with you.

I was wondering if we could possibly set up another fundraiser with our school? We would love to have more of your coffee and chocolate covered up here to sell. The people here love them.

Hola Matias. Just wanted to say thank you for working so well with us on the coffee sales. I am handing out coffee to students today to deliver to their clients. Can't wait to hear the feedback from people!.

Hi Matias! I would like to let you know that we are distributing the orders, the inventory was exactly what we ordered and the fundraiser was very successful.

Hola! We would like to set up our fundraiser in advance for next year. Can you get us in the books for the first delivery in December? We can touch base in September with all of the particulars.

Matias, good news. The sale is going well. There is a lot of interest and there are many repeat customers as you predicted. We will easily do 300 pounds this time.

When support lagged for the usual student/parent fundraising techniques this year, Down to Earth coffee saved us. People who bought one bag, just to be nice, came running back for more...and more.

Coffee sales made themselves, and we were able to fund a significant portion of the students' trip to Tirimbina."

We've tried a lot of different fundraisers but this year we tried the Down to Earth Coffee and Holy Cow, we sold 83 pounds of coffee in 2 week trial run for our big November 2003 fundraiser.

This company is the best I have ever dealt with. The assistance from Matias was most helpful. He was very, very patient while we sorted out all that we had to do on our end.

The price was very fair with room for us to make money; even a local coffee shop bought from us and charged even more as their "Feature Coffee of the Week" (The shop will order more this November).

The coffee will sell itself. We were skeptical but once we smelled its fresh roasted aroma we knew everything would sell. It is delicious and people want to know how to get more! The individual bags were even personalized with our group's name and we could have even had the customers name on the bag as well.

Tirimbina has been able this year to continue funding of scholarships for Costa Rican students, thanks to the portion of Down to Earth coffee sales that is donated back to us.

Helping deserving Costa Rican rural students to continue going to school after 6th grade is a project of the heart, rather than the TRC mission, and therefore needs special funding.

Everyone raves about the coffee, and three children go to school as a result. TRC is very grateful to Down to Earth for helping us make a difference in the community we serve.

I sold close to three thousand pounds of "Down To Earth" coffee while fundraising to take teenagers to Costa Rica. The price was very reasonable, so that we could mark it up and still sell well.

Matias and the company were utterly reliable as to consistent quality, a quick turn-around from their receiving our check to us receiving the coffee.

People were impressed with the classy-looking label and willing to support our cause by buying a pound--- Then when actually tried the coffee, they came back for lots more!

Any time I had questions they were answered quickly. I am very impressed with this product, my church is now selling it to support our missions committee, and I won't drink any other coffee any more!
