Know Your Grower. Know Your Roaster.
Founding Farmers coffee is fully traceable back to the farmers that grow our beans. We work hand-in-hand with our coffee partners at Bellwether, who have built ongoing relationships with coffee growers by providing long-term stability to help farm communities thrive. Bellwether also fosters 2-way transparency to create more accountability and trust across the coffee supply chain.
A large majority of the world’s coffee farmers live below the poverty line. Bellwether provides farmer-centric pricing, working to raise the industry standard and enabling coffee growers to earn a living income. They also have a Farmer Impact Fund that supports community projects to help their farm partners break the cycle of poverty.
In addition to our proprietary blends, our single origin varietal is sourced though our partnership with the ACODIHUE cooperative, a network of women farmers in Guatemala. Called Manos de Mujer, or “Women’s Hands,” this blend was created to recognize the sacrifices and contributions Guatemalan women farmers have made for their households and for the national economy.
We believe that knowing your grower and your roaster makes a cup of coffee even more delicious.
