In 2016, after much debate, we travelled to Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We met with farmers, government officials, cooperative leaders, and local dignitaries. Everyone we met overwhelmed us with kindness, positivity, and a desire to create a better life. We felt compelled to help.
We believe that the only kind of business worth building is one with a greater purpose. This is the foundation of relationship-based coffee. We are beyond “fair trade” because we are in direct relationship with the farmers who grow your coffee.
At Amani, we don’t just order coffee from some broker and ask if it’s “fair trade and organic.” We work with our farmers every step of the process to create better coffee for you. This is not about where your coffee comes from. This is about who your coffee comes from.
By giving back and reinvesting in the community, we establish long lasting relationships with our farmers so that they can create better lives for themselves and their families.
