heartwarming fun ahead!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Caffeine for a Cause promotion! We were able to raise $1,000 for our friends at Culinary Angels, with 50 locals and visitors earning a limited edition Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail mug.

This program has ended. Check back here for information about next year’s charitable cause.

How it works

Visit 5 participating locations on the Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail between November 15th and December 31st to receive a limited edition Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail mug*! 

For each person that completes our Caffeine for a Cause holiday trail, Visit Tri-Valley will donate $20 to Culinary Angels, a local nonprofit that provides nutrient-rich meals to members of the community experiencing a serious health challenge.

About Culinary angels

Culinary Angels is a volunteer, donation-based organization that provides nutrient-rich meals and nutrition education to people going through a serious health challenge.

ABOUT THE Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail

The Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail was created to encourage visitors and residents to sip on unique craft coffee creations, sweet boba tea, and steamy artisanal teas as they explore the most creative caffeine connoisseurs of our region. Throughout the year, participants who visit 5 stops on the trail are rewarded with a Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail mug. Between November 15-December 31st, participants are encouraged to take part in Caffeine for a Cause to earn a limited edition holiday mug and help us raise money for a local charity.
