We believe that the supply chain doesn't need to be opaque. We believe workers deserve a living wage, globally. We believe that companies can and should do the right thing without a purely financial incentive. As such, we've decided to publish not only the per pound price that we pay for coffee, but also all the other costs we encounter along the way.
For reference, the commodity price of coffee is generally at or under $1 per pound. Up-to-the-minute pricing can be found here.

We think it's worth it to pay a little more for a product that treats our natural resources responsibly.
