The economic side of sustainability at the source is achieved by paying fair prices to farmers. Fair prices don’t just cover costs, but also allow for investment back into the farm and the community. We often pay multiple times the Fair Trade price for quality coffees. It is the only way to break out of the commodity cycle, offer long-term prospects, and support a sustainable future for our coffee farmers. We only offer Single Origin coffees, as it gives producers a face within the Specialty Coffee community, and the opportunity to network within it.
