Green Products Or Services
Service Name: Organic Fairtrade Coffee
Description: Locally and artisanally roasted single origins coffees in an organic certified production facility committed to environmentally sustainable, transparent, traceable, and ethical trade.
How this green product or service differ than the industry norm: All of our coffees are sourced directly from farmer-owned co-operatives in Latin America, Africa and Indonesia. The coffee growing partners employ organic practices that prohibit the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms. Instead, coffee is cultivated using farming methods that help preserve the fauna, flora and water sources in diverse and vibrant tropical rainforest ecosystems. Through our sourcing company Cooperative Coffees, we support farmer-led projects seeking to reverse the negative impacts of climate change through soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in coffee producing regions. As coffee roasters, our company is committed to reducing our environmental footprint through the entire coffee production chain. We use biodegradable and recyclable packaging for both wholesale and retail formats.
