Our Coffee is Ethically Sourced

We believe there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore we believe those who do great work should get a great price; we do not believe in coffee subsidies. 

Working with producers to deliver the highest-quality coffee for our customers requires that we listen and give feedback in their creation. 

We believe that an artisan coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee should be given all the credit. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality. 

We know that great coffee can be produced through sustainable methods. We only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and their communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

We seek to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and pay a fair price for all of our green coffee.

We believe our goals are more effectively achieved when the number of individuals or organizations between the coffee farmer and Gobena Coffee are minimized to allow for better communication.
