Blue State Red State is a brand that allows you to give back to society and express yourself with every purchase. We have started with the best coffee we could find, but other products are coming. The idea is simple – buy things you use every day, but instead of us keeping all of the profits, 33% of our profits will go toward making America better. And you direct your donation when you check out, so with every purchase, you express yourself. We will be supporting charities and advocacy groups across our brands because we think people should expect more from the companies they buy from. It’s not enough to have a quality product anymore. We think it’s just as important to be a good corporate citizen, give customers a voice, and share our success. Blue State or Red State – it doesn’t matter – the point is to get more involved and do some good through your purchases! So find the brand that resonates with you and try some coffee – Red State Red, Blue State Blue, or Blue State Red State – we know you will be happy with the product and you will feel good knowing your purchase will make a difference.
Why do we donate 33%?
Most Americans want to give back more, and now you can – more often than before – by buying from a company that gives 33% of its profits to the causes of your choice. Why donate 33%? Because 33% to charity or advocacy groups feels right. Because equally as important as donating to worthy causes, maintaining a profit motive encourages improvements in quality, efficiency, growth, and integrity in everything we do. Because the more we sell, the more we can give. Did you know that U.S. companies gave a median of 1.2 % of their 2008 profits away to charity in 2009? That’s right, only 1.2%. We can do almost 30 times better, and you can help us. Blue State Red State is a brand you can be proud to support. So go to our Facebook storefront, select some coffee, choose your cause, and enjoy the unbelievably good Organic, Fair-Trade coffee that shows up at your door!

I am a coffee junkie!! I have to have it in the morning… at least one cup (okay maybe two)! So when I was given the opportunity to review Blue State Red State Coffee I was excited! I was excited not only for the coffee but for the company… what company donates 33% of their profits to causes of your choice!! How great is that! Now to the coffee part ~ I was given Ramparts Roast to try and I have to say I really enjoyed this coffee! The flavor is distinctive and strong but (they must have known that is what I NEED) but not overwhelming! I give the Ramparts Roast two thumbs up! I would definitely recommend this to other coffee lovers!!
Disclosure: I was given the opportunity to review Blue State Red State Coffee through the Family Review Network. I received one package of Rampart’s Roast for review purposes only. I was not compensated to write a positive or favorable review. This is Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s personal opinion.
