Copper Moon Coffee Supports STEM Students via the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation

LAFAYETTE, Indiana (June 2022) – To help raise awareness for STEM education and support future STEM leaders—from June 1st until July 4th—Copper Moon Coffee will donate 20% of the purchase price from all Blast Off coffee and merch sales to Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF).

STEM education is a priority for Copper Moon Coffee. That is why we partner with ASF. Together with ASF, we are helping future innovators Reach for the Moon® by providing substantial scholarships to the best and brightest university students pursuing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees.

Blast Off is helping to fuel the next generation of STEM leaders with a “Strong Roast” that provides the maximum amount of caffeine (over 1.5x more caffeine than other coffee) while creating a smooth yet intensely strong coffee that gets you ready to “blast off” after one sip!

What makes a cup of strong coffee even more enjoyable?
Knowing you are supporting STEM education while drinking it!

STEM is essential for our everyday lives—both on the ground and beyond Earth. For example, astronauts and civilians can now do experiments in space that we simply can’t do here on Earth. And we want to inspire young students to further their education in aerospace engineering, planetary science, or physics so we can go back to the Moon and eventually explore Mars!

Copper Moon Coffee is thrilled to be helping ASF give students the opportunities to pursue their dreams! Through our partnership with ASF, we hope to continue fostering the young, bright minds that will help our nation develop the technologies necessary for future space exploration!
