Call it coffee with a conscience.

COFFEED, a charity-focused, New York City café and coffee chain, recently opened a new location at 89 Washington Street in Lower Manhattan.

The locally-sourced coffee company, which roasts its own coffee and bakes its own pastries, lets customers give back while getting caffeinated. Every COFFEED shop (there are now 14) donates between 3-10% of all gross revenue to local charities.

And we’re not talking pocket change here. The company’s total donations so far? $238,844.15!

The Lower Manhattan location supports a particularly worthy cause. Proceeds from the café at 89 Washington Street benefit the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, which provides educational assistance to children of those killed or disabled in the September 11th attacks (including those killed or disabled during rescue activities).

So stop by, grab a cup of joe and do some good!
