Why the Forgotten Harvest?

As you might know, we have a passion for the city and the people of Detroit. Detroit Bold chooses to support Forgotten Harvest by donating a portion of the proceeds back to this incredible cause. We blend two types of Forgotten Harvest handcrafted roasts; a light roast and a dark roast. We chose these blends because they go perfectly with the cool Fall weather. The light and dark roasts are a perfect hit for get-togethers with friends & family. You can enjoy this seasonal blend of coffee right now! Stock up with extras knowing it’s a perfect holiday blend & you are supporting a great cause with every sip you take!
