Community, Conservation, Connection

Social projects

We believe in the impact coffee can have on the community. Our range of Project Coffees support local actions in coffee producing countries, from local wildlife protection to farming improvement.

Through our extended network in origin, we implement projects in partnership with roasters and local partners to address needs in coffee producing communities related to health, housing, nutrition, and schooling. Education has been a central focus with schools recently built or renovated in countries including Colombia, Guatemala, Peru and Vietnam.
