Café Mulé is well known for the iconic Richard the Mule, sometimes seen ambling through the foothills to bring trail users coffee on Saturday mornings. But did you know that Café Mulé coffee directly benefits the preservation of those very trails?


For every bag of coffee sold, Café Mulé donates 25¢ to Ridge to Rivers. So when owner Matty Bishop approached us about getting his coffee on the shelves at our stores, we wanted to help make the impact even larger. We agreed to donate 50¢ for every bag of Café Mulé coffee sold at the Co-op. Here are the results:

1st quarter results: $411 donated

2nd quarter results: $315 donated

3rd quarter results: $510 donated

That makes over $1,236 donated just for coffee sold at the Co-op!

So the next time you’re sipping on a hot cup of joe in the morning, you can feel extra warm knowing you’re helping preserve one of the Treasure Valley’s most valued resources. We can all raise a mug to that!
