Revolutionizing Coffee Since 1997

When David Griswold founded Sustainable Harvest® in 1997, transparency was a virtually foreign concept in specialty coffee. Farmers and buyers engaged in an opaque supply chain that created challenges for both sides, from farmers not knowing the expectations of their final buyers to those buyers not having a consistent supply of coffee. By leveraging the power of transparent relationships, Sustainable Harvest® helped change how farmers and buyers interact. While opacity still exists in some part of the industry, many stakeholders have discovered the importance of building relationships in their supply chain to strengthen their supply, foster greater sustainability, and offer a consumer brand-building opportunity.
