Good coffee goes beyond taste.
The story of coffee is a human story.
Overcoming the odds
The women who produce our coffees are pioneers.
By sharing their stories and building a sustainable market, together we’re creating a more equitable and viable future.
To further promote more sustainable communities, we give 1% of sales to the Nuevo Amanecer Women’s Cooperative Scholarship Fund– a fund managed by its members, which provides access to higher education.
Investing in women is powerful. The benefits extend well beyond the household, and the impact is particularly significant in coffee-growing regions around the world.
Always rotating, our current offerings are featured here.
NICARAGUA LA FLORACIÓN
MIRAFLOR WOMEN’S COOPERATIVE
Our Nicaragua Single Origin “La Floración”, and all of our Coffee Infusions, currently feature coffee proudly sourced from the Women of Miraflor Cooperative. The women of Nuevo Amanacer contribute their coffees to this regional cooperative, and we gain direct access via Vega Coffee, a thriving startup based out of Esteli, Nicaragua.
Vega Coffee is reinventing the coffee supply chain to benefit coffee farmers and drinkers alike. By sourcing with Vega, our coffee is roasted by the same farmers who grew it and shipped directly to us.
Most farmers sell their coffee as a commodity to middlemen, leaving farmers with the most at stake earning the smallest share. Vega is doing things differently. They work with small-scale farmers and give them the tools and training to roast and package their coffee, which allows them to earn up to four times more per pound. Vega Coffee is grown, roasted, packaged and shipped from its point of origin.
The additional income earned by coffee farmers has a tangible impact, funding community initiatives like better education for children and greater access to healthcare. Vega’s farmer roasters play a significant role in transforming their communities with knowledge and lifelong skills that go beyond the farm.

HEART OF THE SUN
ROTATING SMALLHOLDER COOPERATIVES
Our current African + South American blend is a delightful offering from women producers in Rwanda and smallholders in Brazil. The Rwanda coffee comes from the Tumba cooperative, and we couldn’t be more excited to share this great coffee with you. By sourcing straight from the members of Tumba, our coffee is directly tied to their remarkable efforts, impacts the livelihoods of low-income women farmers, and creates the basis for more transparent trade, improved quality, and higher prices.
Tumba, a co-op in the hills outside of the capital of Kigali, was founded as a means of bringing an organized method to create jobs and income in the valley. The majority of the farmers are women who were impacted directly by the Rwandan Genocide. The founder, Vincent, has set up programs to incentivize teamwork as well as a strong crop production. There are quotas that he uses to help provide health care, insurance, and micro lending programs. This coffee stood out on the cupping table with vibrant fruit flavors, and we’re honored to share it with you.
