The Ubuntu Coffee Cooperative is a small coffee roasting company located in Emeryville, California. It grew out of a desire to bring to the market the finest Organic, Fair Trade Coffee in a work environment that respects the rights and dignity of all who work to produce it. The Ubuntu Coffee Cooperative roast their coffee beans and deliver them fresh to us each week for your order.
This coffee from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union represents 23 member cooperatives that include more than 300,000 families. The temperate climate and surrounding crops of bananas and maize grown alongside with organic fertilizers under forest canopies produce a very high quality, sought after bean. Notes of sweet berries and floral accents are inherent in coffee from this region and by medium roasting this bean we reduce any sour or overly acidic tastes in the cup. Sourced certified organic, FLO fairtrade.
Ubuntu purchases all of it's coffee from small family organic farmers organized in democratic, fair trade cooperatives and associations. Working with small scale producers, who can put great care into their parcel of land combined with the collective resources of the cooperative produces a top quality product.
