Coffee tastes better when you know the people who grew it.
Since our founding in 2001, Little River Roasting has partnered with farmers, cooperatives, estates and importers in over 20 countries. These long standing relationships allow us to secure the highest quality crops, while ensuring that farmers are treated fairly and crops are harvested sustainably.
We travel to the source when we're able to see the producers' practices and to ensure that they are both responsible and sustainable. We strive to offer only "farmer friendly" coffees paying above market price for harvests and maintaining transparent, honest communication with farmers and importers alike.
Whether organically grown, fairly traded or farmer friendly, all Little River Roasting products support our mission to remain environmentally aware and to promote sustainable commerce both here and abroad.
