Café Amapola is a social impact arabica coffee, ethically grown in Puerto Rico. 100% of the sales of Café Amapola contribute to developing entrepreneurship education programs for women and children. Café Amapola creates a pathway out of poverty by providing opportunities to women and children in Puerto Rico. Our programs are based out of agriculture to develop and support more farm workers and help combat food insecurity.

Our Mission

Café Amapola connects young people to the skills and training they need to succeed in a rapidly changing global economy. Our mission is to help prepare youth for life through fun, proactive and experiential programs infused with life skills, STEAM education, and entrepreneurship training. The foremost objective is to help today’s youth become the business leaders, social advocates, community volunteers and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow. Café Amapola’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program allows youth to practice their soft and technical skills by running their very own coffee business. 100 percent of the proceeds stays local, so you can feel good about helping your community with every cup of coffee.

Café Amapola launches at the Coffee & Chocolate Expo in Puerto Rico
