Great Coffee for the Greater Good

After fleeing Sudan as a child, Manyang Reath Kher arrived alone in the United States as refugee, where he was assisted by CCC's Foster Care Program for unaccompanied refugee minors.


After successfully completing high school and graduating from college, Manyang founded 734 Coffee with the goal of helping other Sudanese refugees. 734 Coffee is named for the geographical coordinates for Gambela, a region in Ethiopia where over 200,000 displaced South Sudanese citizens now live after fleeing war, atrocities, drought, and famine in South Sudan. Proceeds from every bag of ethically sourced 734 Coffee benefit scholarships and education programs for other refugees in Sudan. 

Manyang's passion for refugees and connection to CCC led to a natural partnership to bring awareness to the plight of refugees and a way to proactively assist them.


Together, CCC and 734 Coffee envision a world where poverty is alleviated, where people of all races and faith are treated with respect, and all are inspired to serve. Which is why we bring to you the Commonwealth coffee blend. Proceeds from this special blend will benefit CCC's refugee programs as well as educational programs for the refugees of South Sudan.


Get a taste of coffee so bold and smooth, it'll kick you into action, with a daily cup of Commonwealth, you are sure to do great things to bring the world that you envision to fruition. Let's change the world - one cup at a time.
