Cheek'd bridges the gap between virtual and actual. It fills the much-missing niche between online dating and real-world encounters. It's the 2.0 version of "Call me." Members receive pack of 50 sleek black cards, the same dimensions as business cards, each printed on one side with a different flirtation - "hi," "parents love me," "we'll laugh about this a year from now" - our URL and a code leading to the member's online profile, which includes a first-name-only email address, on the other. They then give a card in real-time to anyone who entices. Distribution can be old-fashioned via conversation, or more mysterious-slid across the bar, tucked inside a briefcase, slipped into a coat pocket. With Cheek'd, chemistry is more guaranteed: Members actually see the person, in person. Cheek'd gives members an opportunity to leverage technology without completely depending on it. Cheek'd promotes safe and playful interaction offline and on.

For nearly two decades, La Colombe has been a leading proponent of ethical long-term trade with coffee growers as well as a key supporter of certification organizations such as Fair Trade Alliance, Rainforest Alliance, Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and others. Most important, however, is our direct influence on the well being of our coffee growing communities - from water resource development and borehole drilling to building and maintaining schools which support hundreds of orphaned children with housing, health care and education. We recognize that as coffee roasters we occupy a unique place in the world, a spot on the narrow bridge between the developing world and some of the most affluent consumers on the planet. To us, this role is more than a responsibility, more than a popular philanthropic logo but a rare privilege seldom afforded. At La Colombe, we intend to make the most out of this opportunity.
