The Coffee Farmer's Co-op
The Co-op is owned and operated by coffee farmers around the world and managed in partnership with roasters and business leaders in the industry. Decisions are made collectively and investments are made back into the farms, communities, and businesses, laying the groundwork for future generations of coffee farmers and their families.

According to a report done by the World Bank, 44% of the small coffee farmers live below the poverty line of $3.20 a day. 22% of those farmers live in extreme poverty of just $1.90 a day.
The Coffee Farmer's Co-op gives power to the poor, a seat in the boardroom, and every farmer is an owner and gets a vote. Farmers are paid above their cost of production, given farm advice, research results on tree varieties, and low-interest rate loans. The profits of the company are shared with the farms, or communities depending on how the owner farmers decide.
Farmers are always squeezed and rarely see profits as large companies press them for lower prices to compete in the market. In fact, 44% of the small coffee farmers around the world live below the poverty line of $3.20 a day. 22% of them live in extreme poverty of just $1.90 a day.
We work to fix that.
We give a voice to the farmers.
We give the farmers the tools they need to succeed.
And we give elected farmers a seat in the board room to make decisions with us.
