It seems like the coffee business is the cool new thing for musicians to get into, and now Win Butler from Arcade Fire is dipping his feet in the caffinated water as well. He's teaming up with Haiti's La Colombe coffee to create RaRa Coffee, which is produced in Haiti and roasted in Philadelphia. Proceeds from each sale will go towards Partners In Health and Haiti Coffee Academy. Read what he has to say about it courtesy of La Colombe's website:

Being in the mountains of Haiti, it is hard not to think about coffee. The elevation, the sunshine, the soil, and incredible people, who have been growing the plant on tiny family plots for centuries. Haiti is buzzing with potential and possibility, and coffee can be an important part of its rebirth!

I'd heard about what La Colombe was doing with their coffee academy so I approached them to see if they'd make this coffee for me, because coffee is so important to Haiti, and Haiti is so important to me and everyone in the band.

Really happy to share this with you, especially with all the funds going to Partners in Health, The Coffee Academy and Haiti.


Win Butler.
