Caribou Coffee is a popular brand of coffee which uses top quality beans and is sourced responsibly. Amy Erickson was a Roastmaster at Caribou.

In 1995, at only 33 years of age, Amy passed away of breast cancer. The company launched a special blend of coffee and a related line of products to honor her, and to help raise money to end the scourge of breast cancer.

By visiting the Amy’s Blend Collection, you’ll find a lighter road of coffee (caffeinated and decaf), as well as a scarf, a mug, a basket, a tumbler, a water bottle, and a blend of tea. Ten percent of sales from these products goes to fight breast cancer.

On their Facebook page, they have “Amy’s National Garden of Hope”, where you can plant a virtual tulip to show your support. For every tulip and message posted, Caribou will plant a pink tulip in Brookside Gardens in Washington DC as a lasting tribute.
