Initial Invitation Email Template:
I am sending you this email to invite you to join a Buyers Club that I am leading on behalf of Farmers to 40 and Grounds for Empowerment, a specialty coffee program that focuses on selling excellent coffee sourced from amazing farmers with 100% transparency.
A bit more information about Farmers to 40 and Ground for Empowerment (GFE):
“Our name says it all. Farmers invest their time, skill and effort to grow high quality, organic coffee. We compensate them by returning 40% of each bag’s retail price directly to the farmer who grows the beans. GFE is a three year incubator program that provides promising women specialty coffee growers opportunity to reach their economic potential. Our friends at Social Enterprise @ Goizueta is brewing up this idea, and can’t wait to share our coffee with our Buyers Clubs.”
