We Pledge 1% for the Planet
Just in time for Earth Day, April 22, we are excited to announce a new annual commitment. More on how it came about and what it means from Progress partner James.
"Years ago I worked with a local nonprofit here in Austin, TX. Through that work, I was able to see how Patagonia Grants and 1% for the Planet empowered their representatives to take action locally.
I've eyed their program(s) since and am beyond excited to announce our commitment to 1% for the Planet.
What does that mean? That means that we commit 1% of annual sales to be donated to support environmental programs. Best part, we get to choose a nonprofit partner for those funds. More on that to come, but for now, know that YOUR purchases will support nonprofits doing big things!"

Over a Decade of Coffee in Austin
Progress started as a cafe in east Austin over ten years ago; long before mid- or high-rises dotted the sky. We started roasting coffee as a way to control the quality of our offerings. We've since moved on from that space but continue to apply the same high standards to the coffee we roast.
What's with the bags?
At first glance you may not even notice, but we want to be clear about some new things happening with our coffee in Whole Foods stores. The bags look exactly the same for now but are slightly smaller. (12 oz vs 16 oz) We have been asked to offer the same size as others in the category as well feature the most popular coffees with occasional promotional items.
Good news: We will continue to offer full pounds of all offerings on our site. Plus, we have already reduced shipping costs to lessen the blow!
