Our primary goal is to support the growth and development of economic alternatives in the coffee trade that promote justice and equity.

We envision a world where our systems of production and trade are based in equitable and collaborative relationships that promote peace, justice, and inclusion.

Acheiving our goal of a more just, sustainable, and equitable coffee trade requires us to work TOGETHER. We create direct access to the market by selling the organic, artisinal coffee from our indigenous partners; we engage our communities in learning about new ways of buying better; we invite our communities around the world to hear each others stories and create relationships, and we work TOGETHER to create new opportunities for fairly traded goods.

Community Partnerships
