Coffee for a Cause

On October 1, the AACR and Bean2Bean Coffee Co. released the “AACR Roast for Research,” a Brazilian coffee from the Minas Gerais region that is available in whole bean or ground. A portion of the proceeds from each bag sold through December 31, 2021, supports the AACR.

Bean2Bean is a family-owned coffee business based in Philadelphia. Founded in 2013 by Obel Hernandez Sr., the company roasts and sells specialty coffee and partners with small businesses and charities in the Philadelphia region.

“Bean2Bean is an expression of our passions and personalities,” said Obel Hernandez Jr., vice president of strategic partnerships. “Our beans are hand selected and roasted to craft the smoothest cup of coffee.”

“We’re excited about our partnership with the American Association for Cancer Research,” he added. “Through the collaboration of the AACR Roast for Research, we look to increase funds for lifesaving research and accelerate the conquest of cancer.”
