About this project
It all started with an idea.
Coffee can be better, do more, make a difference.
Every cup you drink is already doing something, why not drink a cup that does something better.
Our coffees are all sustainably sourced at fair trade or better prices from some of the highest quality farms in the world. Then it's roasted to perfection in small batches in our Tennessee roastery.
Now it's time to take this story on the road, but we need your help!
Join us, as we take the Drink a Better Story message on the road by taking an old van and turning it into a rolling craft coffee oasis.
We'll trick it out with custom pour over bar, espresso machine, and take a cross country tour to spread the message that you can make a difference with every cup of coffee you drink!
In addition to set stops in New York, Washington, DC, Nashville, New Orleans, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle, we'll be taking the brew bus to festivals, markets, and events of your choosing!
In giving you 22 different rewards we wanted to offer you some special coffees, great swag items, and some once in a lifetime experiences, at levels to fit any budget (if you want something you don't see on the list, fire us an email and we'll see what we can do to possibly ad it). Some of our favorites include-
A party with the Brew Bus, you can get the Bus to come to you.

A TRIP TO ORIGIN, go with us to visit farmers in Haiti or with Thrive Farmers in Costa Rica!
These trips will be epic interactions with the chance to share a cup of coffee with the farmers who grew it! You'll spend three days learning all about the growing and processing of coffees with our friends at Thrive Farmers in Costa Rica or our farming partners in Haiti, then as much time as you want before or after to explore the country on your own, the vacation of a lifetime! All expenses paid during three day farm visit as well as airfare and transfers originating in New York or Miami.
We've gone to great lengths to make sure that the rewards will make you more popular and successful! Great one of a kind items and experiences as well as some amazing handcrafted coffees and artisan items from our Bonlife Family, join us, let's Drink a Better Story.
VIVA LA BONLIFE!
P.S.- Please tell all your friends, coffee and world change taste better when shared with others.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about our story, your partnership is GREATLY appreciated and you'll be our hero if you'll share this with your friends!
Risks and challenges
We are already producing the hand fired pottery mugs for the limited edition sets, working out kinks with our t shirt designer on the hand pressed prints, and watching an artist blossom as she works creating paintings made from Coffee!
Join us and get in on the fun, great coffees, cool experiences, and the chance to be a part of something special.
We'll offer an update every 7-10 days on additional progress and details.
The total cost of the van and road trip will be significantly higher than our fundraising goal, so we're hoping to go well beyond the target and have some surprises for backers along the way to help fuel the fun.
You can make a difference, we need your help!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
YES! once the Kickstarter is completed we'll send out a fulfillment questionaire in which you can specify shirt size if that was part of your reward.
Let us know what you're thinking and we'd love to create a custom reward for you!
