A quality coffee experience is our responsibility, from seed to cup. Great coffee is our mission, our craft & our passion. We aim to raise the level of what people should be expecting from their coffee. We have created an environment where we can make a difference and have fun while doing it!
Coachella Valley Coffee has a commitment to preserving the environment and contributing to the communities in which we live and work. Since our first trip to a coffee farm in Nicaragua back in 1999, we have always strived to build a one-on-one relationship with each coffee farmer and their local community. We have supported schools with computer systems, uniforms for all the kids, and salaries for the staff and we will continue to do these because we believe “it is absolutely the right thing to do”. We have great partnerships where our farmers know they will be paid a very fair price for quality coffees. Coachella Valley Coffee supports every hand involved in the coffee journey. We’re committed to positively impacting our global coffee community from seed to cup. Therefore, we strive to source products from organic and or Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farms. Currently, over 30 percent of our coffees come from women-owned farms, knowing the impact that women have always had on society we’ve spent the last two decades supporting them with our efforts to create a more gender-equal environment. We are proud to have partnered with the largest women-owned coffee broker in the country, as they help us find great coffees from amazing farmers.
We insist that every hand that touches our coffees is paid fairly and treated with the utmost respect.
We truly love great coffee!
Every Friday morning at our roastery in the Coachella Valley we brew a few selections of our latest roasts, sip & savor, letting the warm brew gently awaken our spirits. Even after 27 years in the coffee business we still marvel at the wonderful sensations a great cup of coffee provides. It is this morning ritual that reminds us of the importance of our work and the way our product touches others.
We aim to raise the level of what people should be expecting from their coffee.
We are down to earth, good for the earth, and one of the best coffee roasters on earth.

Since our first trip to a coffee farm in Nicaragua back in 1999, we have always strived to build a one-on-one relationship with each coffee farmer and their local community. We have supported schools with new computer systems, uniforms for all the kids and salaries for the staff and we will continue to do these because we believe “it is absolutely the right thing to do”. But we have also been very discouraged by how little cold hard cash makes it into the hands of the farmers.
With all the good intentions taken into consideration, we all know that that extra money you and I pay for a fancy little sticker on that coffee bag, maybe…just maybe. ten percent of that “up-charge” ever makes it to the hands that grew the coffee. Therefore, we have started our (FtC) Farm to Cup coffee program. Our goal as a company is that within the next few years, we will be buying all of our great coffees directly from our farmers and paying an extra premium (up to 25%) so not only do we keep the farmer in business, but we also improve their lives as well as their local community.
We strive to visit each of our farms every two years as we build a strategy with the producer. Then, we’ll return at the end of the harvest to taste coffees and discuss the outcome of that harvest and reward a job well done as well as discuss options for the next year. Producing great coffee is expensive, so the investment the farmer makes is always taken into consideration. We know that certain improvements bring additional costs for our farmers, and we want to compensate them appropriately for better quality. Rather than negotiating a price with a broker or an importer, we settle on the price directly with the farmer. We understand the farmer’s cost of production and we understand quality, so we negotiate a price with them. Our Farm to Cup program is not just a way of saying that we negotiated the price directly with the farmer, but it’s also our way of saying “this coffee farmer is in it for the long run, and we are as well”. So, keep watching for more roasts with our Farm to Cup seal. As we move forward, we will be adding more farms to this exciting program as funding becomes available he
WE BELIEVE THAT A QUALITY COFFEE EXPERIENCE IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY FROM SEED TO CUP. GREAT COFFEE IS OUR MISSION, OUR CRAFT & OUR PASSION.
