TAGUIG, Philippines – Coffee solutions provider Henry & Sons has launched The Giving Caravan, a roving vintage Volkswagen café that gives away free cups of coffee in the streets of BGC.
Lauched earlier this year, the social enterprise is meant to support the company’s advocacy arm, the Foundation for Sustainable Coffee Excellence (FSCE).
“We worked hard in finding out ways to get more people on-board in helping us achieve our foundation’s goals. TGC was borne out of that—and with it are a slew of replicable platforms designed to carry out our mission.” – Michael Harris Conlin, Henry & Sons President and CEO

The Caravan is where people can sample Henry & Sons’ Bloom Coffee range, a series of specialty coffee crafted with the intent of funding programs that make coffee farmers’ lives easier.
Each Bloom Coffee benefits a specific FSCE project: The Giving Well is for giving farming communities atmospheric water generators that give them access to clean and potable water; Beans for Little Ones help provide mosquito nets and vaccines for basic health care of the farmer’s children; Cup to Seed helps fund livelihood programs in between harvests; Coffee for Great Minds is for giving out educational assistance to those in need; and lastly, Beans within Reach help launch activities that connect farmers to local and global buyers.
The two other platforms of TGC are The Giving Café and The Giving Cart which will be launched later this year.
