We believe coffee is much more than just a beverage or an aid to further alertness and productivity. We believe there is a Spirit of Coffee that fosters a connection between people and can join us together in the moment. Many of us can recall special things happening over coffee - an awesome first date, a period of silent introspection first thing in the morning, or an honest talk with a friend about an issue or problem we're facing. Whatever the case, coffee connects us with the present moment, with each other, and with something beyond ourselves. We are a community and Spiritus Coffee Company is committed to giving back and trying to make a difference. We believe that our success comes when we help others succeed. We will donate 20% of all profits from the sale of our coffees to local non-profit organizations dedicated to working in fields of mental health and substance abuse. Please visit this page regularly for updates on our community partnerships. One of our first partners will be the 516 Light Foundation. This organization's mission is to "spread awareness, education, and resources to people affected by addiction in the community. Helping addicts and families on the road to recovery is our goal. To encourage, engage, and equip others to believe in the possibilities." We also are partnering with NAMI Dupage. It is the mission of NAMI Dupage to provide support, advocacy and education in order to improve the quality of life of individuals with mental illnesses and their families.
