Helping specialty coffee farmers access premium markets through sustainable direct trade relationships. Full transparency & traceability.
Our mission is to de-commoditize the way coffee is traded. Starting with our home country and largest producing origin – Brazil, we give producers and co-operatives a platform to participate further within the coffee supply chain. This permits roasters and importers worldwide to generate greater impact at origin through direct relationships with our producer network on a full transparency & traceability model.
