YIELD Coffee is a humanitarian coffee roasting company dedicated to relational coffee and long-term sustainability. We collaborate closely with coffee farmers who share our commitment to sustainability, exceptional quality, and long-term relationships. We transport these beautiful coffees to Cincinnati, roast them fresh every week, and deliver them to our wholesale partners and coffee lovers around the US.
Our roasting philosophy is to bring out the best intrinsic qualities in the coffees we source. The ultimate development of quality occurs at the farm level. We do everything we can to make the coffees shine, so that they can reflect the extraordinarily hardworking coffee producers and communities with which we collaborate.
Our three levels of impact include:
1. Coffee Producers: We pay coffee producers between 250 and 350 percent of market rate for the best ethical and highest quality coffee. This premium paid to the coffee producers is helping to end the cycle of poverty.
2. Local Communities: We work with local nonprofits, NGOs, and social initiatives to improve the quality of life in our communities.
3. Global Projects: Investing 10% of our profits in sustainable development projects in coffee producing countries. These initiatives are giving people hope for a brighter future.
Drink Coffee That Matters
As a social organization, we are deeply committed to our purpose of making a positive impact in the world of speciality coffee by building life-changing relationships. Throughout the specialty coffee supply chain, we are actively investing in the lives of others.
Every single coffee we roast tells a remarkable story. We desire to highlight the producers, the families, and the communities these exceptional coffees represent. We go above and beyond, not because we have to, but because we believe together, we can be the sustainable agent of change to bring life and love to these worthy people. Specialty coffee has the potential to return dignity and wellbeing to coffee producers and their communities.
