Not all coffee farmers are in the same situation. 80% of the 25 million coffee farmers globally own less than 2 ha of land, and usually lack access to the capital, infrastructure, and scale necessary to make good profits from their coffee.
We work exclusively with these smallholder farmers. The farmers we work with either reach out to us directly or are part the Pachamama Coffee Cooperative
, a truly inspiring, vertically integrated farmer owned cooperative made up of close to 200,000 coffee farmers.
We work with agronomists at the cooperative level to ensure that the trees that are planted are legitimately beneficial, and wherever possible with each individual farmer directly.
