Our Alternative Trading Model 

Cooperative Sourcing coffee is a cornerstone for Conscious Coffees. Since joining Cooperative Coffees in 2003, we have not only eliminated middle men in the value chain by importing directly, we've also been able to create and maintain long-term relationships with individual farmer organizations. Buying coffee from the same producer partners, year after year, enables us to maintain consistent quality and also guarantee the farmers a reliable source to sell their harvests. 

Cooperative Coffees is a green coffee importing cooperative, committed to building and supporting fair and sustainable trade relationships for the benefit of farmers and their exporting cooperatives, families, and communities. As a founding member of Cooperative Coffees, our goal is to make coffee-growing a sustainable and beneficial endeavor for farmer families and their communities.
