ID Coffees is the product of many years and countless experiences in sustainable development and coffee sustainability.
We first discovered coffee's potential for improving smallholder farmers’ lives while working on an agricultural development project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). From that time forward, we began to work exclusively on coffee focused sustainable development projects.
After searching for coffee brands that embodied sustainability and authenticity, for both consumers and producers, we decided to create our own.
From the lessons we’ve learned along the way, working with farmers, roasters, and consumers, we’ve created a sustainable, Supply Chain Impact Model to connect smallholder farmers to markets (you!).
At ID Coffees, our mission is to humanize the coffee supply chain. We know that behind each coffee there is more than a story and a photo. We help coffee lovers understand where their coffee comes from by providing the real information behind each coffee’s unique identity. All while supporting sustainable livelihoods for producers.
Our vision is a more equitable and sustainable trading system, with a restored balance of power that treats farmers as partners- not commodities.
Our supply chain impact model increases the amount of money that coffee farmers receive from the price of each bag of coffee, improving farmer livelihoods and quality of life.
Our curated content provides curious consumers with information about their coffee, the origin and the people who cultivated their coffee.
Our coffees and subscriptions are a convenient way to drink great coffee while learning more about coffee, origins and people.
