Talitha Coffee Launches to Empower Survivors of Sex Trafficking Through Ethical Coffee Roasting

New Specialty Coffee Roaster for a Cause Establishes Operations in San Diego County

SAN DIEGO--()--Talitha Coffee, a new specialty coffee roaster, headquartered in San Diego, announces its launch with a mission to produce high-quality, locally roasted coffee at an accessible price point, making an impact by providing employment opportunities, training and support networks for survivors of sex trafficking as they build hopeful futures.

Talitha’s focus is on being more than a coffee brand – it's a people-first coffee roasting company that is building a community committed to creating change together. Each bag of coffee supports this collaborative endeavor, directly contributing to a journey of healing, empowerment, and shared triumph.

Witnessing the devastating intergenerational impact of trafficking from a young age, co-founders Jenny Barber and her husband Robert recognized the need for a sustainable solution. Combining their commitment and dedication to advocating for survivors with their passion for craft coffee, Talitha empowers these individuals to take back their power and write their own story.

To extend its community reach, the coffee roasting company has also created “Talitha Survivor Support Network,” made up of a team of experts and organization leaders in the field of anti-trafficking. Through this network of collaboration, the company looks to further bolster its effectiveness in facilitating reintegration, reentry, and restoration for survivors.

"Our goal is to inspire others by demonstrating that it is possible to make a positive impact while also creating value for customers, employees, and communities alike," says Jenny Barber, Talitha Coffee co-founder. "We want to be a leader in a world where businesses are both profitable and transformative in facilitating positive change, as we are striving to accomplish in the anti-trafficking movement."

Talitha Coffee’s hope-filled approachable specialty coffee will be available beginning at the end of the month from its online retail store with a focus on customizable coffee subscriptions and a full-service wholesale program providing coffee for businesses including cafes, restaurants, and hotels. The wholesale program also provides guidance for coffee bar layouts, equipment sourcing, supplies, menu design, and comprehensive professional barista staff training.
