A better way to buy green coffee.

Quality. Equity. Sustainability.

Bellwether coffee buying principles.

Farmer-centric Pricing

We are committed to raising the industry standard by paying farmers equitable prices that enable them to earn a living income.

Ongoing Relationships

We develop direct relationships with our farm partners and work to sign year-after-year contracts, providing long-term stability to help farm communities thrive.

Gender Equity

We buy coffee from women producers whenever possible, providing financial empowerment to women across our supply chain.

Invest in Farm Communities

We provide financial resources directly to our farm partners, enabling them to fund projects that support their local communities.


We foster 2-way transparency with our farm and retail partners to create more accountability and trust across the coffee supply chain.
Making a difference

Impact programs to create a better future for coffee.

Supporting Farmers’ Livelihoods

Living Income Pricing

80% of the world’s coffee farmers live below the poverty line and current prices paid to farmers do not meet farmers’ livelihood needs. Living Income Pricing interrupts farmer poverty by paying prices that close the living income gap for coffee producers.
Investing in Farm Communities

Farmer Impact Fund

Investments in coffee communities above and beyond the price of coffee, further enables coffee producers to break out of the cycle of poverty plaguing the world’s coffee farmers.
