From seed to cup, Chicago French Press is dedicated to making your morning with a premium cup of coffee. While we understand that coffee plays an important role in your morning grind (pun intended), its role is much bigger than that. We believe in developing our communities and environment by partnering with organizations focused on a community purpose. Each time you invest in a bag of one of our premium blends, a percentage goes to our partners, to help them fulfill that purpose. To us, coffee is community. Every step we take is a step taken together with our partners in bettering that community. Read more about our partners or sign up to become a nonprofit partner below!
