We will cover the full production cost to let your design connect thousand of coffee lovers around the world, all funds raised from your design will be used to help coffee people in need.


The success of our fundraising heavily relies on the quality of your design, and the quality of your design relies on the print files you create and your understanding of speciality coffee. The better the quality of your print files and design story, the better the overall performance of the fundraising. However, we can not guarantee your design will be accepted.
