Café Ama is happy to announce that we have partnered with Café Rican, founded by Reynaldo Delgado Santos, to share our products with the people of North Carolina!
Delgado Santos, originally from the municipality of Corozal, established Café Rican in 2017. Inspired by his love for Puerto Rican coffee, his company imports local coffee brands from the island and sells their products at various markets and events.
“Sharing my culture, one coffee cup at a time, to help Puerto Rico’s coffee economy and its people. That is my mission.”
Café Rican introduced Café Ama for the first time on June 19th, at the Art-N-Soul Market in Mystic Farm & Distillery. The market was just one of the many events in which Delgado Santos will share our delicious social impact coffee. The people at Art-N-Soul loved learning that they can help women and children by simply purchasing Café Ama. Over 20 bags were sold!
That social impact, our mission, is precisely what drove Café Rican to partner with us. Delgado Santos says it is “amazing and humbling” to know that he can sell a coffee that results in Puerto Rican children being taught and given “all the right tools to open their own small businesses.”
Café Rican will bring Café Ama to Durham Central Park this Sunday, in a market by The MAKRS Society from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
In August, you can find them at the following events:
- August 8th, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Downtown Cary Food and Flea Market
- August 21st, once again at Mystic Farm & Distillery in Durham.
- August 28th, from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Raleigh’s International Food Festival.
