Empower our Farmers
Because of the hard work our farmers put into our coffee, we want to ensure they are empowered with: a fair and livable wage, community development, and value adding systems through sustainable and quality practices. We want each of our coffees to cultivate a relationship through which the farmer is cared for.
We roast each of our single-origin coffees to display the unique flavors of that region. In other words, each coffee has its own potential that we want to compliment, not cover. Knowing that many coffee farmers are exploited in unjust manners, it has been our desire from the beginning to ensure our farmers are being empowered through two initiatives: our Fair Trade Coffees and Gold Leaf Series.
Fair Trade Coffees
Fair Trade USA ensures our coffee farmers are getting paid a fair price by setting minimum livable wage. This protects farmers from unsteady markets and corrupt middle-men. The result is communities empowered with good wages, sustainable practices, and safe working conditions.
Gold Leaf Series
These are exceptional coffees with exceptional stories...stories that deserve to be heard. The golden leaf of approval means these coffees are accomplishing more than just ensuring a fair wage. They are directly impacting communities through strategic partnerships. Read about each coffee on their product description page in the online store.
