The Emiliani Project’s new Giselle roast is now available in our online store. This roast features an 8-year-old little girl named Giselle Davila (pictured left) who was rescued from the streets of Medellin, Colombia. The bean for our Giselle roast comes from San Agustin, Huila, Colombia. It is a full city plus roast for a darker, richer and more full-body flavor than our Ximena roast.
For those of you who love our Ximena roast, it will still be available for purchase. As always, 100% of all profits from the sale of all of our coffee goes to help us build our new children’s home in Medellin, Colombia. Check out our Online Store for Giselle availability, and watch us on Facebook for updates.
Don’t forget, you can volunteer to help us bag coffee and prepare it for sale on March 2 at the Saint Margaret Parish hall in Oceanside, CA. 1pm to 2pm. Pop in anytime and bring the family!
Volunteers Coming to Colombia!
April 6th to 27th volunteers will be coming to Colombia to work with The Emiliani Project, our kids and the construction of our new home. There is still time to sign up! All you need is a passport and a willingness to get your hands dirty helping others. For more information, contact our Director of Missions at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be an experience of a lifetime!

Spreading the Word
The Emiliani Project has been visiting parishes in the Southern California region to drum up support for our upcoming volunteer trip and volunteer coffee packaging party on March 2. A special thank you to Saint Margaret’s Parish, Saint Mary’s by the Sea in Oceanside, and the military chapels aboard Camp Pendleton. The parishioners have welcomed us with open arms and embraced our mission. Thank you so much!
