  • Sources Magazine Issue 1: Beans of Resistance
  • 16oz of Cameroon Boyo Coffee (Whole Bean)
SOURCES is a publication devoted to sharing comprehensive stories from different parts of the coffee producing world. These stories bring both positive and negative current events to light. The magazine takes an initial interest in coffee producing regions or producers implementing sustainable practices; then delves deeper into complex situations that need to be shared with the outside world.

 

We partnered with the Sources Magazine team to help bring Issue 1 into fruition by connecting them to our partner Matti at Cameroon Boyo. 100% of magazine profits will go directly to our friends at Cameroon.

ISSUE 1
Beans of Resistance 
The intersection of the past, present, and future 
This is the beginning of a story with struggle, pride and hope 

The primary motive of this issue is to bring insight into the turmoil and instability facing the English, or Anglophone region of Cameroon, from an experienced perspective.  

The people of this region from Cameroon seek to share their plight and current situation with the world. Initiating interest from readers outside the region will bolster conversations inside and outside Cameroon. 

This dispute in Cameroon has been simmering for decades, but boiled over in 2016, and since then, has cost over 3,000 lives, and displaced over 500,000 people.

Treat yourself!

For me this coffee is a swisher, not a sipper. The notes are enigmatic; subtle yet definite. I kept going in for another try, but my vocabulary failed and my cup emptied. I am so happy I tried this one! It is so pleasing.
