Then how come 80-85% of the world’s coffee farmers live at or below the poverty level?
They have no negotiating power because they are so small. Money is made from coffee but it rarely trickles down to the farmers.
In January 2020, the ladies of Azizi Life taught me what it takes to make a cup of coffee, from ground to grounds. By the time I was done from picking the beans, to getting the fruit off of it, to drying it, to roasting it, to grinding it, and finally brewing a cup, I had new found respect for coffee. Lord have mercy, it’s a lot of work!
Hear me when I say this, the coffee you drink matters. The growers matter. You need to know where your coffee comes from.
We carry Singing Rooster and Hemisphere Coffee Roasters. I can assure you they care about the growers and they invest in the community.

Remember the coffee you drink matters
