We're always looking to do things just a little bit better and our coffees are no exception. Our new "Farm to Future" coffees have been roasted in collaboration with Cafe LuGuo, easily one of Taiwan's top "third wave" roasters.
Fair Trade specifies a price of $1.40 per pound paid to farmers; a $0.20 premium over market price. We source our coffee directly from low-income and aboriginal farmers and pay them 10-30 times the premium they'd receive for being Fair Trade certified.
Although much of that surplus will spill over into the community we believe that ethical sourcing means taking an active role in improving the communities who grow our amazing coffee. We re-invest 100% of the profits from every bag of coffee we sell into our Playcare and Weekend Playcare programs. What does this mean? Building more quality community owned and operated schools to serve at-risk and low-income communities.
This particular coffee was grown at Finca Miravalle in El Salvador (read more about this farm here). This farm is very special as it's one of El Salvador's prestigious Cup of Excellence winners for 2015. El Salvador is currently home to two Playcares, including our brand new Factory Playcare at San Julian outside of San Salvador. The profits from this particular coffee will be used as startup capital for the very next community Playcare we build in El Salvador (details coming soon)!
