Our Green Coffee

High-quality, certified green coffee beans (Fair Trade & Organic)*

Quality green coffee beans are the first key to making the best-tasting cups of coffee … that’s why we’ve made sourcing the best, most sustainable green coffee our first priority. At Merchants of Green Coffee, we sell green (or “raw”) coffee to home- and micro-roasters who care to source beans from the top 5% in world coffee quality, and control their coffee’s freshness by roasting their own.

All green coffee we source is double-certified (Fair Trade & Organic) unless noted otherwise, and all sales directly support our flagship coffee program that’s working to restore forests in order to address coffee’s carbon footprint and mitigate climate change. As a company, we’ve broken many of the standard rules of business to get here and that is the point. Tap into a better, fresher supply of coffee below …

 How to Roast Green Coffee in your Oven

*Fair Trade & Organic: Merchants of Green Coffee can trace all green coffee back to source and prove that 100% of our coffee orders since our company was founded have been for only certified green coffee, unless otherwise noted. In cases where certification is not available, Merchants is in direct contact with the growers of the coffee and can verify that: a) A fair price was paid to the grower, and b) No non-organic pesticides and/or fertilizers were used in the coffee’s production. We are currently working on updating and converting our usual workflow into a digital format; This will incorporate independent local facilities that service better coffee of the highest quality with the many certifications offered today.

Why is Sourcing Fair Trade & Organic Coffee Our Priority?

Our primary concerns when it comes to sourcing sustainable coffees where we don’t control the production, is ensuring coffee farmers are paid a decent wage and that the environment is not being polluted with chemicals. This is the main reason we choose to source strictly Fair Trade and Organic coffee beans. We also understand that true transparency in business requires partnerships and we feel there is value in the work and ideology of these organizations. Merchants also sometimes supports smallholder coffee farmers and cooperatives that are transitioning to various local and international certifications; Or that are simply producing great quality coffee and can provide a trusted account of the bean’s origins and growing conditions. In situations where Merchants engages in direct sourcing, we pay growers a minimum price of US$3.25/lb (and often times higher); which, drawing on nearly 3 decades of research, we have determined to be today’s sustainable coffee price.
