Sustainability

We believe the work of a coffee producer deserves to be rewarded. In order to build economic and agricultural sustainability, Project Origin pays premium prices for green beans, we created our Regionals program to purchase small microlots that would otherwise be forgotten, developed processing techniques to increase coffee quality leading to greater incomes, and invested in community projects to help better the livelihoods of those who contribute to the coffee farms. To continue this work, we share our programs with our roasting partners, believing in the power of transparency along the supply chain.

Organic Fertilisers – Don Fabio Caballero

It takes a lot of organic matter to create your own fertiliser to nourish coffee trees and balance soil qualities.

Our Core Values

Quality

Quality, for us, is more than just a cupping score. We take the relationship of score, cup profile, price and purpose to stamp our Project Origin mark of value on a coffee.
