Want to be ethically responsible?
Buy (truly) Fair Trade
We partner with a non-profit organization that works directly with the Haitian farmers and ensures they are fairly compensated for their labor- $3.30 or more per pound. This is over three times what is typical of Fair Trade certified compensation. Numerous studies have revealed that many times, the extra money going to coffee farmers that are certified as Fair Trade never actually receive the extra pay! The pay goes to a coop they are part of, and somehow doesn't trickle down.
Buy products with earth-friendly packaging
Our bags are 100% biodegradable. Yes, even the plastic-looking one-way valves that allow the off-gassing carbon dioxide to escape and keep the oxygen that makes coffee go stale out. Is it possible for coffee that comes in fully biodegradable bags to be fresh? Absolutely! No quality loss, just pollution loss.
Buy organic and non-GMO
Our coffee is 100% organically grown and GMO free. No pesticides. No chemical fertilizers. Just pure coffee.
Support small businesses
We are a small family-run roastery that cares about our community. We make healthy choices for our family and are responsible in our dealings with others.
