Imagine a coffee industry that provides dignifying wages to farmers, that generates net-zero impact on our environment, and that paves a way for local communities to thrive. We’re not there yet.
That’s why, at Amavida, we’re not satisfied being just another Fair Trade coffee roaster. We’re energized by pushing the limits of what it means to be an ethical and sustainable coffee company, because we believe the pursuit of exceptional coffee is one of the most powerful ways to create positive change—in both coffee producing countries, and at home.
We’d love to show you how.
Our fair trade coffee is produced at fair trade standards that allow dialogue, transparency and respect to support producers and foster sustainable environmental farming practices. Hence, our mission is to be friendly and equitable, and to be recognized as the best organic coffee brand. At Amavida Coffee Roasters we develop trade partnerships that improve the financial conditions and profitability of small farm owners, most of whom are based in developing nations of Latin America, Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.
