We partner with CRS and USAID and visit the farms that grow our coffee, working with producers to help increase their quality and yields. This ensures that they can produce the best coffee possible and get paid fairly for it.
As a member of the green coffee importing collective Cooperative Coffees, we are able to buy coffee directly from the farmers. This means we are able to establish direct, long term relationships with the communities that grow our coffee. We pay higher than fair trade prices and give feedback to the farmers to continually increase the quality of their crops. This direct trade relationship provides a solid foundation that benefits us all.
