Hurricane Eta relief in Guatemala

Update!  We want to say a big heartfelt Thank You to all those who have donated in support of Guatemalan families, in what has been a challenging year for many.  We're so happy to be part of this generous and caring specialty coffee community. 

Read our latest newsletter  for an update on the relief efforts.  We'll keep this fundraiser open through December 31st, 2020 if you'd like to donate.  If you'd like to see where funds are going in real-time, check out this  allocation sheet .

Our hearts go out to all the people impacted by Hurricane Eta. We very grateful to report there are no injuries or loss of life within our direct network and family. Sadly, across the country of Guatemala more than 300,000 people have been impacted with more than 150 people presumed missing or dead. 

Particularly near and dear to us at Onyx Coffee is the town center of Agua Dulce, Huehuetenango where a mudslide destroyed homes of many pickers that help support surrounding farms. Our Guatemala based team plans to visit this area in the coming weeks to meet with Producers and be of assistance. 

We have partnered with Habitat for Humanity  Guatemala in that past and we encourage you to donate to them directly: https://www.habitatguate.org/en/tropical-storm-eta-response/

That being said, Habitat is not currently working in Agua Dulce and when our team visits we would like to purchase and deliver critical supplies.  Onyx will match the first $500. 

Thank you for your support and we'll keep you posted when we visit the area.
