This year our Plucky Brand added a brand new line of wonderful coffees to our Shopify store. The Gobena brand and they have a wonderful story to tell. And Plucky is happy to share that story with you.
In the summer of 2007, Steve and Danae traveled to Ethiopia to adopt their little girl, Eva. The contrast in cultures was amazing. The Ethiopians they met lived in poverty, but were rich in their sense of community and in the closeness of their relationships.
Gobena (pronounced gō•bĭn•ŭh), a 70 year-old farmer, found Eva abandoned in the yard near his home. “Because she is God’s soul,” Gobena and his wife, Mulunesh, took care of the newborn baby for about a month. During this time Gobena and Mulunesh realized that they would not be able to provide for Eva, so they traveled 150 miles to a police station to seek help. At the police station they learned about adoption and realized that putting Eva in an orphanage to be adopted was the best option for the child. Eva is now a permanent member of Steve and Danae’s family. She is truly a blessing from God and a constant reminder that there is always hope, as long as there are people who care.
Gobena’s sense of community inspired Steve and Danae to start this coffee ministry where 100% of the net profits were reinvested in the lives of orphan children throughout the world. In 2012, Lifesong accepted the challenge of growing Gobena… where each bag of coffee sold blesses the lives of children.

Through a partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, Gobena is able to give back 100% of their profits to care for orphans and vulnerable children. Which means every purchase you make is helping change a child’s life!
Gobeana supports The Forgotten Initiative by helping them use their coffee to raise money to mobilize and equip the Body of Christ to make a difference in the lives of agency workers, foster parents, vulnerable adults and children through service projects, mentoring and family support initiatives.
