A sustainable future for coffee is uncertain. However, enjoy better
Speciality coffee is not commodity coffee in definitive ways, one of which is that many of the best independent speciality coffee roasters optionally pay upward of $4.00-5.00 per pound for their imports in the common belief that this is a much fairer price for the farmers, their communities and the coffee supply chain. Through direct-to-source relationships, suchlike provides their producers with added certainties, and only on such certainties can producers truly commit to sustainable practices, be it in the present, on investment for the future or in mitigation strategies against unknown events such as forest fires, drought and more. By our customers making conscious purchases from the best of independent coffee roasters - most of which can be found on the marketplace or through our coffee subscriptions - instead of less ethical and sustainable supermarket / multinational cafe alternatives, you too can help contribute towards the support and sustainability of the global coffee supply chain. Besides, the differences in quality of taste need not even be mentioned, all there to be seen and enjoyed.
