Sourcing Ethical Specialty Coffee
Clear your skin with a powerful cream mixed just for you.
A major focus of our sourcing is using traceable coffee sources in order to support family businesses, small agricultural communities and farmers who share our values: sustainable practices, better pricing, and high-quality coffee. For this reason, we have included a "Coffee Story" section under each of our products to show our attention to traceability, and further highlight the farms we work with.
We are also sourcing Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance certified specialty coffees. While they offer a certain level of security, these certifications are the minimum we’re aiming to achieve. The truth is, even with certifications such as Fairtrade, producers are still not paid optimally, even though these prices are considered above industry average. We have a long way to go, and this is just the beginning.
Our vision at Alpaca Coffee is to grow into a direct-trade company in which we purchase coffee directly from producers. In this way, we will be able to build a personal relationship with coffee farmers and pay more than fair prices to help uplift livelihoods and the quality of coffee. Fairer prices for farmers; better coffee for you and the planet.
