A new coffee shop will open in Lubbock, and its mission goes above just serving a good cup of joe.

The Root Coffeehouse will open in April as a 501(c)(3) in the River Crossing shopping center located at 6023 82nd St. Suite 1. The business aims to raise awareness of poverty throughout the world including in the agricultural world.

According to their website, The Root will donate all profits to organizations that fight poverty:

Every cup of coffee creates sustainable change within our community. Our profits are given away to organizations who are effectively interrupting cycles of poverty at the root to foster long-term, sustainable change.

You can keep up with The Root and their mission on their Facebook page.
