We Know Our Farmers by Name

We talk to our farmers directly so we understand their farms and how we can work to excellent standards of coffee that bring about positive change in their communities.

Ethical and Sustainable from Soil to Sip

By cutting out the middlemen we can pay our farmers up to 4 times more than supermarket commodity coffees while still offering you value for money.

Lasting Partnerships

We Know Our Factories by Name

We visit all of our factories before we start production and all have to meet our ethical standards and have SEDEX (or equivalent) registration to ensure transparency in our supply chain. This isn't Alibaba sourcing, it’s cramped flights and budget hotel rooms that make true partnerships.

We buy forward

When you take up a Barista & Co Regulars subscription this allows us to forward plan and make a financial guarantee to our farmers so they can invest in their land to bring about long term change for their family and community.

We Treat Everyone the Same

Our belief is that our customers, farmers and factories are of equal importance and we welcome all with a commitment to always work in partnership to deliver exceptional coffee with respect and empathy.
