And some mornings, it’s just not enough.
But there’s another way to get a boost from your cup of joe without upping the caffeine.
Many coffee bean sellers are giving a portion of their sales to charities and other great causes, so you can feel even better about pouring that second mugful.
Here are seven coffee companies that you can buy from that’ll make you feel like a good person.
1 – Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co.
From the author: In the spring of 2012, I unexpectedly stumbled upon a dog adoption operating on the side of Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, CA.
I was in no way planning, or prepared to adopt a rescue animal when I left the house that morning, but when a malnourished, brown and white, Dalmatian crawled into my lap, it was clear that I would be welcoming a new member to my family.
She immediately became the center of my life and I cannot imagine a day without her.

7 – Three Avocados Coffee
From the author: Our story begins in the humble village of Bulopa Uganda.
Bulopa, like many other villages in Uganda, is a very remote and extremely poor village.
There is a small church there, which amounts to nothing more than a few sticks in the ground and some benches.
We had been invited to worship with the people of Bulopa.
Despite the fact we were over four hours late, the entire village was there to welcome us.
It had been a long day, we were all tired and eager to get back to the comfort of our hotel in Jinja.
And then it happened.
As the offering basket was passed around, a poor widow placed three avocados in the basket.
It was literally all she had.
And she gave it up, all for the sake of others.
You see, in Uganda, the pastors do not receive any pay.
The food they eat is given through the offering as they visit different villages.
That widow had given all she had to ensure someone else could eat.
What a beautiful gift.
