WE CARE about the hard working men and women who harvest coffee beans. Our roasters visit micro farms around the world to learn about the nuances that make those farms special. Then we buy our beans directly from those farms which helps ensure they are treated ethically and paid fairly.
OUR PURSUIT OF QUALITY has lead us to believe that you really do get what you pay for, and having a bag on the shelf stamped Fair Trade simply isn't good enough. Our Direct Trade sourcing has allowed us to positively effect coffee quality at the cultivation level, while being able to pay our producers at least 25% above the Fair Trade export price.
SUSTAINABLE SPECIALTY COFFEE results from our partners' conscientious cultivation. Farmers for our Dominion Yirgacheffe, for example, use coffee cherry pulp to grow shiitake mushrooms and compost as feed for animals leaving virtually no footprint.
