Direct Trade

More than 90% of our coffee is sourced directly from our coffee farming partners.

This is among the highest rates in the specialty coffee industry.

Direct trade is an ongoing commitment to equitable trade that ensures super-premium coffee quality and maximum benefit for the people who grow and harvest the coffee. We count them as professional peers and friends.

We pay our direct trade partners significantly more per pound than the commodity market or Fair Trade price. This empowers them to improve their lives and the lives of the farm workers. Every cup of coffee you drink at Seattle Coffee Works is an investment in coffee producers' livelihoods and the long-term viability of specialty coffee.
