WHAT'S OUR STORY?
Diego Rodriquez, the founder, was born in T'HO, Mexico; The Crossroads of Maya history. Today people know this city as Merida, Mexico. He spent his childhood working on cocoa farms while his mother and grandmother fermented and roasted all day in the kitchen. Diego often reminisces about the taste of his grandmother's chocolate straight off the wooden spoon. "There is no better taste", he says. His mother and grandmother taught him the process of roasting cocoa beans, which he soon learned, was very similar to the process of roasting coffee beans.
"We say we want to change the WORLD, and we pray for the power to do so, but what we often forget, is that power is not what we need. All we need is an opportunity to change the world, and luckily, we are given that everyday." - T'HO, CEO
1. CLEAN WORLD:
The earth gives us coffee beans, so T'HO gives back biodegradable bags and reusable cans.
All of our bags and valves are BioTRE Biodegradable. After use, please throw our entire bag into your compost pile and return it back to the earth. Once we switch our packaging to cans, there will be a program in place for can reuse/refill.
2. CLEAN mind:
Within the U.S. 44 million people experience mental health conditions, and 56% of those people do not seek help. Remember, this doesn't even include the rest of the world or the people who are too scared to admit they need support. T'HO is committed to spreading awareness about Mental Health by partnering with the Mental Health Association of San Francisco (MHASF). We host many events, silent auctions, support groups and coffee cuppings to not only spread awareness, but to also provide a comfortable, judge-free zone. Anyone can come out, enjoy a great cup of T'HO coffee, and share a memorable time with friends and strangers. We often have a speaker at the events who has either studied mental health or experienced a mental health condition. All from proceeds we receive at these events are donated to the MHASF, non for-profit.
This foundation we are creating is dedicated to, and in memory, of Ryan Considine, Lisa York and all the other amazing people we have lost to mental health. May they rest in peace knowing they were deeply loved.
