Better Results = Better Coffee

Most Small-scale farmers earn less than $2,000 per year

Yet those same farmers produce 80% of the world's coffee. With incomes that low, they're forced to choose between investing in their farms or taking care of their families.

But What About "Fair" Trade?

"Fair" trade pays between 15-20 cents extra per pound of coffee, but the sad truth is that money usually doesn't reach the farmer. And even when it does, it's not enough to make a real impact.

That's why we pay 4 Times More than "Fair" Trade Bonuses

And we bypass middlemen to pay those bonuses directly to farmers for their hard work—leaving them with an income that will change their lives.
