Values-based roasters are creating
the future of coffee.

Discover roasters committed to sustainability, innovation and equity in specialty coffee.

Specialty coffee is facing significant challenges:

Climate Change

The dominant species of coffee globally, Arabica, thrives only in a delicate combination of climate factors, all of which are projected to be heavily impacted in the coming decades.

Unequal Value Distribution

We feature small roasters who are solving these challenges through: ​

Sustainable Practices

Sustainability goes beyond agriculture, to maintaining sustainable living wages and sustainable relationships with growers that ensure long-term stability for the entire coffee value chain.

Progressive Innovation

Innovation is critical to the future of coffee as we know it - roasters must encourage exploration of new coffee varieties and growing techniques, as well as more creative, win-win trade arrangements.

Consumers are projected to spend over . on specialty coffee globally by 2030.
