COLBY'S CREW STORY
We saw Big John's story of rescue and well-deserved retirement at Colby's Crew and fell in love!
Big John, the gentle giant horse who holds the unofficial title of the largest living horse in the world, was rescued from slaughter by Colby's Crew, a nonprofit organization based in Warrenton, Virginia. Despite his towering twenty-hand (6'8'') stature, it was Big John's endearing personality that attracted many followers.
Known as the "King of Horsetok," Big John captured the hearts of many through his goofy and gentle nature. However, life wasn't always easy for Big John, who was underweight, abused, and lame when he was first rescued by Ally and her wife, Olivia, at an auction in April 2021.
After years of working as a draft horse, Big John deserved a dignified retirement, and Ally and Olivia were determined to give it to him. Today, Big John is thriving, and his story has touched the hearts of many, spreading awareness about the importance of animal welfare. We at [The Great Coffee Project can't help but love Big John and his inspiring story.
The story is way more than Big John
Colby's Crew Horse Rescue is an incredible organization, and we wholeheartedly support their efforts to save horses from the horrors of slaughter. Their social media accounts are filled with heartwarming stories of rescued horses, each with their unique history and personality.
Every day brings a new tale of triumph and resilience, and we are constantly inspired by the dedication and compassion of Colby's Crew. We firmly believe that these beautiful creatures deserve to live in comfortable homes, free from the abuse and neglect they have often experienced. Colby's Crew has created a safe haven for these animals, providing them with the care and attention they need to thrive.
Whether it's the majestic Colby, the towering Big John, the tiny Bison, or the newest rescue, Hope the donkey, each of these animals deserves to be free and loved. We are grateful for the work that Colby's Crew does and are proud to support their mission to save these wonderful animals.

About the Coffee
At The Great Coffee Project, we understand that the quality of the coffee we source is crucial to the success of our brand. That's why we take great care in selecting only the highest quality beans for our coffee blends. We work closely with our trusted coffee partners and farmers to ensure that our beans are grown and harvested using sustainable and ethical practices.
Our team of expert coffee tasters carefully samples each batch of beans to ensure that they meet our strict quality standards. We only select beans that have been grown at high altitudes, in nutrient-rich soil, and have been harvested at the peak of their ripeness.
Our beans are then carefully roasted to perfection, using our unique blend of art and science, to bring out the rich and complex flavors that our customers have come to love. We also believe in giving back to the communities where our coffee is sourced. That's why we work closely with our coffee partners to provide fair wages and support sustainable farming practices. We believe that by investing in these communities, we can help to build a brighter and more sustainable future for everyone.
So, whether you're enjoying a cup of Ellie Mae's Roast or any of our other delicious coffee blends, you can be sure that the beans were sourced with the utmost care and attention to detail. We believe that our commitment to quality and sustainability is what sets us apart and we look forward to sharing our passion for great coffee with you!

About COLBY's CREW RESCUE
From their website:
Our Mission Statement: "We strive to save horses from being slaughtered, one life at a time!" Colby's Crew Rescue, established in 2021, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is solely focused on the good and well-being of the horse. In August of 2020, our horse Colby was rescued from heading to slaughter. His journey that started out as abuse, neglect, fear of humans and danger has changed into a journey full of compassion, trust, and positivity. Colby has formed an inseparable bond with his trainer, Ally. This bond has inspired the creation of this rescue to help other horses, like Colby, that are in need.
Every year in the United States, over 80,000 horses are shipped out to Mexico or Canada to slaughter houses. These horses endure a one-way trailer rider to an unimaginable fate. The last stop before a slaughter house is a direct-ship kill pen. Colby's Crew rescues horses from kill pens, auctions and bad situations. These horses are usually in terrible condition: sick, neglected and tossed away.
We strive to provide rehabilitation, veterinary care, training, and eventually adoption to forever homes!
