Carlos Santana, the ten-time GRAMMY Award-winning guitarist and philanthropist has launched The Carlos Santana Coffee Company with a joint mission: to serve fans and friends around the world the most divine and meaningful cup of coffee while helping children in need throughout the world through his The Milagro Foundation.
Inspired by the legendary music of Carlos Santana and the legacy of his generosity to people around the world, The Carlos Santana Coffee Company offers premium, fresh-roasted coffee produced from the finest quality beans around the world, hand-crafted to awaken both your heart and mind.
Throughout his life, Carlos has been committed to giving back. So, in 1998, he created The Milagro Foundation with the mission of helping young people, especially in underprivileged communities both across the globe and here in the U.S. A portion of every purchase of The Carlos Santana Coffee Company coffee and merchandise is donated to The Milagro Foundation, which makes grants to organizations that support underserved and vulnerable children in the areas of education, health and the arts. These proceeds will work to enrich the lives of youth, break down barriers to their success, and help end cycles of poverty.
“We believe that life is a miracle and that children everywhere deserve the opportunity to lead safe, healthy and educationally creative lives,” says Carlos Santana. “It is an honor to partner with Icon Global Coffee and with each cup of coffee, make a significant difference in the world. And as we say ‘Wake up and smell the future!’”
To bring The Carlos Santana Coffee Company to market, Santana partnered with Icon Global Coffee Company and their 90-year-old fourth generation importer, roaster and packaging company. Each roaster is a member of the Roasters Guild of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and has at least a decade of experience, ensuring that each cup brewed will produce the rich, intense flavors one would expect from a specialty coffee.
Icon Global Coffee Company CEO Greg Ousley says, “All of us at Icon Global Coffee Company are humbled and proud to partner with Carlos Santana, his family and the entire organization as well as The Milagro Foundation. Coffee is a global business and touches and impacts billions of people’s lives each day. Carlos is a global ambassador of peace, unity and divinity. Together we will all make a difference, spread hope and create positive change. Through support of The Carlos Santana Coffee Company, fans, followers and friends can have “Coffee with Carlos” and we can change the world together.”
A Coffee Club subscription service is also available, allowing customers to schedule deliveries of fresh-roasted coffee straight to their door. Never worry about running out of coffee again, and contribute to consistent change through the Milagro Foundation. Like Carlos always says, it’s time to wake up and smell the future.
