Hi there McKinsey&Co team! 😎

You know what’s pretty dope? YOU are helping us to work together with a value chain of social enterprises that empower coffee farmers to become entrepreneurs. Your cuppa is singlehandedly financing: agroforestry projects to increase biodiversity and sequester CO2, investment in more productive, energy-  and/or water-saving equipment, (transition to) organic coffee production and gender equality to name a few.

Thank YOU for making an impact – one cup at a time! (and if that ain’t that a cheesy headline, we don’t know what is!)

Rwanda Rushashi

With a water- and energy saving triple fermentation method, advanced pulp recycling methods and two women empowerment organisations, Rushashi coffee washing station (CWS) was already truly progressive. Since 2019 they are transitioning to regenerative agriculture by implementing agroforestry systems in their coffee fields. Pretty much the future, dude!

Find notes of vanilla, black tea and caramel in your cup. 

Brazil, the biggest producer and exporter of coffee. Imagine mountains and hills covered with only coffee trees neatly put in rows so that machines can harvest the cherries with ease. A country flooding the world market with coffee so that the C-price is being pushed downwards with only the most efficient farmers making a profit. 

Ooooorrrrr, we get ourselves Brazil Capricornio! The Brazilian exporter/farmer that has a vast amount of knowledge about soil and agroforestry making this coffee a “conscious” Brazil. This coffee supports agroforestry projects in the Capricornio network. They greatly reduce the ecological footprint of all their 20 partner farmers: they help them create water-efficient mills, implement waste water treatment technologies, and apply systems thinking to optimise all coffee processes and reduce CO2 output. They also stimulate the use of organic fertilisers, energy-efficient machinery and irrigation systems.

Tasty beans with a big body to pack some punch to you cup. Find notes of chocolate, molasses and hazulnut in this bad boi.
