Celebrating Earth month
Sustainability at the Core
Pachamama was founded upon the idea that a better business model was possible. A business model where coffee farmers, our shared Mother Earth and coffee drinkers can all benefit. Our commitments are to building a better future for all: we have a long way to go but together as a collective we can show up for future generations.
Below you can explore a round up of our articles and other features discussing all things "impact": our impact on the planet, our impact for farmer owners and our impact to you as consumers.
"Think of the sea change that could happen if more coffee farmers were similarly positioned to capture most of the profits from a cup of coffee, instead of earning just a penny or two. Sustainable coffee could then be the fuel that makes the world go round."
Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment
“This farmer-owned and farmer- governed model shifts some new business risks onto farmers, but also moves farmers from price- takers to price-setters, who control value addition and who thus capture significantly more of the profits than in most coffee value chains.”
Earth Month: Our Commitment to the Future Of Coffee
We were founded to create a more equitable and sustainable future for coffee, coffee farmers and our planet. Through ownership, small-scale coffee farmers are able to have a voice and a vote about the direction of their business to sustain themselves for generations to come.
Clean water. Biodiversity. Soil.
PRESERVING ECOSYSTEMS WITH ORGANIC, SHADE GROWN COFFEE
By preserving natural ecosystems and shade canopy forests, farmers are growing a better crop of coffee AND the techniques they use draw carbon, the biggest climate change contributor, back to the soil and out of the atmosphere. In recent decades this type of farming has come to be renowned as regenerative agriculture, but our farmers have been practicing this for generations through native cultivation and indigenous land practices.
Gender Equity and Social Programs at Prodecoop
Social sustainability focuses on the impact that businesses can have on the greater health, equity and viability of communities. Prodceoop is a prime example of how cooperatives are made by and for the communities they serve.
Specialty Coffee Association
Our business model was recognized by the Specialty Coffee Association for its impact for small scale farmers. By investing in a solid foundation of economic stability at each link, Pachamama’s supply chain can sustain itself. Our business model delivers an equitable distribution of value for all who depend upon the future of specialty coffee.
