The coffee trade isn’t fair to small-scale farmers. We solve that problem by providing a 50% bonus directly to the people creating your coffee, an amount 4 times higher than “fair trade.”
By waking up each morning with a cup of Farmers First Coffee, you’re giving hard-working coffee farmers from Honduras and Peru the opportunity to lift themselves up economically.
