Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea

The coffee bean harvest season in Nicaragua lasts from December to March, resulting in 80 percent of coffee workers having jobs for only 3-4 months per year. But by upcycling the typically wasted prunings from the coffee plant, Wize Monkey is able to generate year-round jobs for coffee workers that would otherwise have to regularly move their families in search of temporary off-season work. As an innovator of Coffee Leaf Tea, Wize Monkey rediscovered a centuries-old traditional beverage and reinvented it to create not only a delicious cup of tea, but also open up a new product industry for coffee farmers. The Original Wize Monkey Tea is light in caffeine and provides clarity and focus without the typical crash of coffee or other highly caffeinated beverages. With zero calories and a smooth, rich taste, Coffee Leaf Tea is a healthy, antioxidant-rich alternative to your daily coffee ritual. And by repurposing an underused part of the coffee plant that is harvested in the offseason, they’ve been able to generate year-round jobs for families, develop stronger communities and lessen seasonal hunger.
