When buying products, we use a series of key questions to help align products with our core values, as well as determining if we can help the growers and their communities. Our discussions with coffee cooperatives range from sustainability, innovation, access to market, food security and product diversification, to school supplies, art or music programs, health concerns, clean water, and gender equity.
We work to build long-term community solutions into the price of the coffee. To help reach that goal, we have helped establish mushroom farming, chicken and egg hatchery, organic produce storefronts, pruning and weeding equipment, school books and supplies, youth job training through chocolate production, a community bus for transportation, quality control equipment, production videos for Roya prevention, cervical cancer screening, farmer travel, skill building workshops, and Fair Trade contract for lower interest rate borrowing.
