Coffee is one of the most traded goods in the world today. Because it is actually considered a luxury product, many people in coffee growing regions spend most of their lives picking coffee cherries, yet they can’t afford to drink it. It’s so easy for strong, rich countries to control the market and pay the bare minimum to make the coffee cheaper at home. Sadly, this is what happens a majority of the time.
Honest Coffee Roasters strives to be different; to be a part of the growing family of third wave Roasters who are actively changing the coffee industry by paying the farmers what they actually deserve - and more! Even though Honest Coffee Roasters is a small company, they invest in their farmers by visiting their farms and focusing on their relationships with them. They also make sure the farmers are paid enough to pay their own workers fairly, as well as help them improve their farm.
Honest Coffee Roasters support farmers that sow back into their communities. Many of the farmers offer free schooling and affordable housing. Due to their close relationship with the farmers, they are able to know who their farmers are personally and their passion for what they do. This relationship allows Honest Coffee Roasters to share the whole story of each bean, step-by-step, from tree to cup. This is the Honest process: quality, sustainability, and transparency through every single step.
