Fair Trade Sourcing
As a founding member of Cooperative Coffees, Third Coast Coffee directly imports coffee from small farmer cooperatives throughout Central and South America, Africa, Asia and Indonesia. We have gained mutually beneficial, long term relationships with our producer partners in the twenty-two years of Cooperative Coffees' existence. Third Coast makes year-long commitments for our green coffee to ensure a reliable and steady supply of many varieties that we offer.
All of our coffees are certified Fair Trade and Organic. The one exception is Colombian coffee from Fondo Paez and Cosurca, which is Fair Trade Transitional, grown using organic methods and in the process of acquiring organic certification.
TRACING YOUR COFFEE
We strive for transparency in the process of bringing the beans from the farmer to the consumer. Every bag of Third Coast Coffee can be traced to its origin.
