Organic coffee also averages a $.02456 per pound increase in market price for coffee producers.


The Fair Trade Certification seeks to increase welfare for small farming families and communities by safeguarding ethical trade practices at every stage in the supply chain. A Fair Trade Certification guarantees a minimum market price for all Fair Trade coffee plus up to a $0.29 premium per pound. All Fair Trade premiums are designated for social, economic and environmental development projects that are democratically and fairly selected by each community based upon greatest need.


The Rain Forest Alliance Certified seal ensures that our coffee is regularly audited to meet strict standards of social, environmental and economic sustainability. These standards seek to promote and continuously improve biodiversity, natural resource conservation, effective planning and farm management systems, and to improve agriculture livelihood as well as the farming community. 


The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center is dedicated to understanding, conserving, and championing biodiversity and the grand phenomenon of bird migration. Founded in 1991, and located at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, D.C., SMBC scientists seek to clarify why migratory bird populations are declining before the situation becomes desperate. Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center programs help raise awareness about migratory birds and the need to protect diverse habitats across the Western Hemisphere. Market pricing varies plus up to an additional $0.15 premium per pound.


The FRC Direct Trade seal notates coffees that have been sourced directly from the farmer without any middlemen. The Direct Trade model ensures the farmers at origin receive the highest premiums for their products, setting a higher quality standard and allowing more resources to be put back into production, education and social programs.


Kosher Certification is the stamp of kosher approval by a rabbinic Agency verifying they have checked the products ingredients, production facility and actual production to ensure all ingredients, derivatives, tools and machinery have no trace of non kosher substances. The Kosher Certified symbol assures consumers that both the actual product and its production adhere to all Kosher Law requirements.
