Where do you get your coffee?
Our coffee is curated and procured from around the globe. With our mission to share the world of coffee each month we introduce coffee from a new region or country. Ethiopia, Congo, Rwanda and beyond, check out our product descriptions for more information about the various farms we source from or feel free to reach out and ask us!
Is your coffee fair-trade?
Fair Trade & Sustainability
Fair trade and sustainability are things we care deeply about and is reflected in every coffee that we source and share with our subscribers.
Raising the floor
The fair-trade movement is an amazing movement that helped ensure a fair wage for mass growers & producers of coffee where the cost and quality of the coffee was traditionally lower i.e. commodity grade coffee.
With regards to specialty grade coffee
The rise of the specialty-grade coffee market (top 5% of coffee in terms of quality) has driven up demand and price for top-quality coffee which has led to much higher pay for farmers who farm specialty-grade coffee. This isn't to say that there aren’t still some wage issues for a small number of specialty coffee growers, but the vast majority (and all of the farms we work with) pay above "fair-trade" prices. Not only because it's the right thing to do, but also because it helps invest in quality coffee year after year.
...a great win, win, win for everyone. The farmers are directly incentivized to invest in coffee quality and sustainability year over year. And we all get to support, invest in, and enjoy quality coffee year over year.
