We’re Leveraging Coffee
To Make The World Better
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.
Love Specialty Coffee, Love Life
Our Mission Isn’t Marketing
We’re in it for the long-haul.
