The global need for a more equitable, sustainable, and transparent coffee industry is as much an economic concern as it is a humanitarian one. In 2009, we embarked on a journey to fill this need for farmers in Rwanda. What started with the hope of helping a few, now provides global market opportunity and purposeful work to 1.5 million farmer partners in 35 origin countries around the globe.
