We believe great coffee starts with great roasters.
If it isn’t the best, it’s not on Trade. Our roasters start with great beans and utilize their distinctive roasting styles to bring out each coffee’s rich, complex flavors. Then, our experts cup (or “taste”) each one to ensure it meets our high standards.
Coffee begins and ends with people. Our roasters develop lasting partnerships along the coffee supply chain to build an equitable global community. Farmers receive fair prices that provide better living conditions and capital to invest in sustainability.
When we say local, we mean it. Our roasters are ingrained in their communities and those communities are ingrained in them. They provide employment, education, support for nearby organizations, and a welcoming space for folks to meet over coffee.
