Donations to Autism Speaks®

What Is Autism?

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a developmental disability that affects about 1 in 44 children in the U.S. (CDC). Those with this disorder experience challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication ( However, early intervention can lead to positive outcomes for those with autism.

Autism Speaks®, is a non-profit dedicated to providing solutions for those with the disorder and their families through advocacy and research. As someone with dear loved ones with the disorder, I am pleased to assist this mission. Apricitas Coffee, LLC will donate $1.00 for each bag of coffee sold from our website to Autism Speaks® to for advocacy and research. In addition, our customers will also have the option to donate at the time of purchase as well. Therefore, check out our great coffees today, knowing that a portion of each purchase supports a great cause!
