THE HEMINGWAY CONSERVANCY



Hemingway Coffee  warms you even before the first sip. When you drink our coffee you can take solace in the fact that proceeds from each delicious cup of Hemingway Coffee will support the Hemingway Conservancy Fund, dedicated to the preservation and education of the precious environment that Ernest Hemingway so cherished. As a further commitment, we are proud to be a member of the 1% For The Planet, empowering all of us to drive big, important environmental change. Beyond the Hemingway Conservancy Fund and 1% For The Planet, we passionately support many other global and local conservation initiatives and will continue to do so for as long as you enjoy Hemingway Coffee.

 

"Best of all, he loved the fall, the leaves, yellow on the cottonwoods, leaves floating on the trout streams, and above the hills the high, blue, windless skies... Now he will be a part of them forever."    

 

Hemingway Family Legacy

Ernest and his sons, not only enjoyed full lives of wildlife adventure, they have also been intensely involved in nature conservancy and preserving the diversity of life on this planet. Papa enjoyed a 21-year history as the Vice President of the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA), from 1940 to his passing in 1961. Patrick was professor of wildlife management at the university of Kenya. Jack served two terms as the Idaho Fish & Game Commissioner, from 1971 to 1977, and was a Board Member of the Nature Conservancy. Gregory's son Sean worked with noted wildlife conservationist Norman Carr in Zambia and has devoted much of his life to the study and preservation of the world cultural heritage as an archaeologist and museum curator. Patrick's daughter Mina also spent years working in wildlife conservation in Africa as well in her home state of Montana. Mary Hemingway, the last wife of Ernest, donated over $1,000,000 in her will to both the Audubon Society and the World Wildlife Fund.

 

Our mission is to continue the Hemingway passion:

We are on a journey to become the Most Conservation Conscious Coffee on the Planet.

When we are young, our journeys start small - the local pond catching frogs, getting soakers, climbing trees, the magic of that first night the stars took your breath away.

We never tired of that feeling.

Our journey began in our youth as backpackers, nature lovers, fly fishermen, wildlife wanderers and hopeful romantics. We have crossed paths and walked in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway many times. From the hardwood forests of Northern Michigan, to fly fishing in Spain, Italy and the high plains of Idaho, to chasing marlin in the deep blue waters off the Cuban coast, to Tanzania and the top of Kilimanjaro.

Today we are calling on all the dreamers and doers, the believers and achievers.

Come join us on our journey to create positive and lasting change for our planet. And enjoy a cup of Hemingway Coffee along the way.
