Having offices in four coffee-producing countries enables Sustainable Harvest® to easily trace lots back to the producers who grew them, and our in-house system provides up-to-the-minute updates of coffee's journey from origin to port.
Sustainable Harvest® connects coffee buyers to coffee growers to negotiate price directly, discuss quality expectations, and create shared understanding.
Our Most Valuable Producer program connects roasters to some of the best-managed co-ops around the globe to provide a wide range of sustainably sourced coffees—from value organics to core blenders to distinct micro-lots.
In 2013, Bloomberg Philanthropies and Sustainable Harvest® partnered to create the Relationship Coffee Institute to increase social and economic opportunities for coffee farmers and their families. This innovative nonprofit provides a platform for Sustainable Harvest®, our customers, and others in the industry to collaboratively invest in some of the coffee world’s most pressing challenges.
By bringing all coffee stakeholders to the table and fostering an environment of radical transparency, the Relationship Coffee Model creates the foundation for sustainable business. Leveraging actors outside of the traditional supply chain, such as philanthropy, government, nonprofits, and financial institutions results in increased shared value, most importantly in the form of improved farmer livelihoods and greater supplies of high-quality coffee.
Let's Talk Coffee® is an event series that gathers the coffee supply chain to meet, do business, and learn from thought leaders in a variety of industries. The events offer an unprecedented chance for collaboration, and provide a key opportunity for roasters to meet with the Relationship Coffee producers they source from in one-on-one meetings. The events are truly the Relationship Coffee Model brought to life, celebrating inclusive supply chains that are transforming how global business can impact society and long-term profitability.
