Your experience of enjoying a cup of coffee at a café or at home ends with a smile, but starts in each of the countries we support. Quality and sustainability are paths of continuous improvement that we must follow together: a single gesture can make the difference.

We offer quality education to young people to improve the social and economic sustainability of the country.
We fund the Seeds for Progress Foundation, which supports rural schools, builds new ones and trains teachers. By doing so we can offer easier access and quality education to young people who join the project, in order to improve social and economic sustainability.
We clean up the aquifers and repopulate the native vegetation.
Since 2013 we have been repopulating the native vegetation, restoring the aquifers and improving the living environment of coffee farmers. This is our way of taking care of the part of the planet in which we operate, pursuing paths towards environmental and social sustainability.
At the end of 2019, we reforested 70 hectares of land and installed 76 wastewater treatment systems; We created 23 facilities for the processing of coffee pulp, training 99 families of producers; We trained 60 students of the school of Támara on good environmental practices.
For us, supporting women means supporting an entire community.
In 2019, we financed the purchase of a coffee plantation and the planting of about 2,500 certified quality coffee trees to be used as Farmer Field School for a cooperative of 40 coffee producers in the Hindiro area.
Thanks to the “Viveiro de Atitude” program we have built a nursery that can house over 100 plant species.
We safeguard biodiversity and water resources and promote environmental education in Brazil. The "Viveiro de Atitude" program involves the construction of a nursery that houses over 100 plant species native to the Cerrado region.
The plants are distributed to producers creating green resources for the city of Monte Carmelo. Proceeds from the sale are donated to local organizations to support children and the elderly.
To ensure a better future, we support research and share the results with the community.
Investing in research is essential for those who pursue the dream of guaranteeing a sustainable future also in the cultivation of coffee. For this, we collaborated on a groundbreaking research which sequenced the genome of Arabica coffee, and we made the results available to everyone.
It is estimated that by 2050 the land suitable for the cultivation of Arabica coffee will be reduced by 50%. Thanks to this groundbreaking research, farmers can now adapt plants to changing climatic conditions, such as rising temperatures, prolonged drought and severe flooding.
Every drop of water is precious, which is why we have embarked on a path that has environmental sustainability as its goal.
In 2019, thanks to our support, 13 producers in Nicaragua and Honduras were able to implement a new wastewater treatment system in order to reduce water consumption by 35%, safeguarding resources and reducing the impact we have on our planet.
With the “Escuela y Café” project we provide producers with professional skills and a future.
Part of our coffee comes from the plantations of 62 rural schools in the Cauca region of Colombia. We financed them with the "Escuela y Café" project, with the aim of reducing early school leaving, fighting child labor and improving education.
The project provides students with 1,500 coffee seeds per year, so that they can plant them on the family farm and have a productive plantation by the end of the 6 years of school. This means having the financial resources to attend university after school or start their own business.
A quality coffee must not only be sustainable from an environmental point of view, but also from an economic and social one.
Supporting communities to promote the creation of excellent and sustainable manufacturing practices around the world is our goal. For this, we are committed to building lasting relationships with farmers, based on knowledge sharing and sustainable growth.
We raise sustainability standards through our coffee procurement process certification protocol.
For us, sustainability must be pursued at every stage of the production process. Thanks to our new certification protocol for the coffee procurement process, we monitor the supply chains, guarantee product quality, and protect the environment and the safety of workers.
