We're a collective of entrepreneurs, economists, sociologists, activists and coffee professionals.
We're united by two things: our passion for social justice and coffee.
Most of us work remotely and many of us are volunteers, but we use the power of collaboration (and Slack)
to meet our shared vision of a sustainable future in smallholder communities.
We love results, but we also truly care about the process. Oh, and we enjoy celebrating the small milestones!
