Café Britt is a member of ASOBITICO, an association which supports public education in Costa Rica through the implementation of the International Baccalaureate Diploma in schools in different regions of the country.
In addition, the company donates textbooks to public schools, motivating around 1,000 students each year to see education as the surest path to a promising future.
In order to promote the culture of coffee and its traditions and history in Costa Rica, Café Britt’s Coffee Tour is provided for free to selected educational and cultural groups. Through this program, more than 500 visitors from elementary and high schools, institutions for the elderly, foundations, and NGOs that work alongside vulnerable populations are received annually.
Britt supports the work of entrepreneurial small businesses in the countries where we have a presence. Well beyond actors in a simple purchasing relationship, we see artisans, farmers, coffee producers, and others as an essential part of our business. These strategic links are strengthened by a relationship that encourages and facilitates training, advice, and follow-up.
One example of this commitment to small producers is Tu Comunidad Cuenta (Your Community Matters). This program in La Cruz, Guanacaste, was developed through a public-private partnership between Café Britt, the Tecnológico de Costa Rica (TEC), and Santa Elena Preserve. Over a period of eight months, participants received training in the revitalization and evolution of their products through programs that reinforced and promoted local identity, inspiring in them the search for excellence and quality in order to adapt to market demand.
