**This Original Art Helps Coffee Sustainability
Starting in September 2016, Steven Mikel began painting with expired direct-sourced coffee from THRIVE Farmers to create many of his Dark Roast Paintings. Additionally, Steven has pledged to donate 10% of all related painting sales to support sustainable development projects among coffee farming communities via the ThriveWorx Foundation, the non-profit arm of THRIVE Farmers International.
