  • Connections is excited to partner with Jumpy Monkey Coffee to sell several varieties of coffee during the month of November. Coffee sales through Connections will benefit senior programs. Coffee can be purchased on-line at our website (click on title to link to the e-commerce page) or at our Council Bluffs and Sioux City offices.

    Jumpy Monkey Coffee is blended and packaged by persons with varying abilities, so your purchase brings a great cup of coffee to you, supports our programs and brings employment to persons with disabilities - a "Win-Win-Win!"

    Varieties include: Celebrate Connections (a unique blend only available though this fundraiser), Cinnamon Sticky Bun, Highlander Grog, Pumpkin Harvest, Jingle Joe, and Good Morning Blend. For the non-coffee drinker, a Omanhene Hot Cocoa option is also available.
