Beanstock is an independent, not-for-profit initiative hosted and organized by Specialty Coffee Importers Mountain Coffee (with love). Our goal is to bring awareness to Specialty or Third Wave Coffee, bring the community together, and do our part in creating a sustainable future for coffee.
The trickle down of dollars in the consumer market will not ensure a future in coffee. The average price per pound for production is ~$2.25 USD. Commodity and Fair Trade Prices are far below this number. All of the roasters involved are sourcing and roasting coffee through importers like Mountain Coffee who are paying above the cost of production to help producers and farmers exit the cycle of poverty they face year after year.
Every coffee has a story, and we are so eager to share them with you.
