We don’t just deal with coffee. We live it. It’s always been a part of our family history, which is why we are here changing the way coffee is bought and sold.
Cafe Orgullo Celeste was born from the need of providing a more sustainable future for my family in Guatemala. In 2015, after visiting them in the town of Fraijanes, I first saw what a coffee plant was and how difficult it was to grow, pick, and process. I realized how little money was earned by the families in the region for their backbreaking work – not nearly enough to sustain their livelihoods at global market prices. I returned to the U.S. with the mission to improve the quality of life for my family and their workers. Through the collaboration and trust of the producers in Fraijanes, Cafe Orgullo Celeste has finally introduced their high-elevation coffee beans to the world – with sustainable pricing, in spite of the low global market prices.
FAIR WAGES & SUSTAINABLE SOURCING
We pay our producers above premium pricing regardless of what the world market prices say. We also pay our producers a higher percentage if we sell their coffee beans for a higher price. This ensures real sustainability on both ends. We also provide farmers with quality control services like soil testing and roast profiling to ensure the highest quality coffee bean is provided to our consumers.
