Our People

Pachamama is composed of farmers from all over the world, the directors elected by those farmers, and a California-based team of roasters and baristas. Each person is an integral part of the Pachamama family and carries our mission forward.

Farmers

This couldn't happen without them. Thousands of families of farmers make up the five member groups that come together to own Pachamama as a global cooperative.

Meet the Groups

Directors

Each director is elected by coffee farmers and represents one of the five cooperative members from around the world that form Pachamama Coffee Cooperative.
