Think for yourself.
We created Social Project Coffee because we know that it is a challenge to understand if your purchasing decisions make a positive impact in the world.
Social Project Coffee is based on the idea that it is the efforts we make every day to help farm workers or their communities that make the biggest difference. Claims by coffee roasters of paying prices above market are nice, but the higher prices paid for quality coffee – and marketed by roasters as a social good – often end up in the pockets of landed farmers who may or may not share their wealth with those who really need it. It is the details, not the blanket proclamations, where the important work is done.
More than 98% of what we roast is Social Project Coffee.
We hope you find that our coffee tastes just a little better knowing that, with nearly every purchase, you support projects like housing reconstruction in Colombia, feminine hygiene in Ethiopia, or clean water access in Nicaragua.
