Cafe Campesino was founded in 1998, becoming Georgia's first and only 100% fair trade, organic coffee company.

We are a national online retailer and wholesale roaster-distributor with our headquarters, roaster, and flagship coffee house located in Americus, Georgia, birthplace of Habitat for Humanity and about 9 miles east of Plains, home of former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn.

We supply individuals, coffee houses, markets, fundraisers, restaurants, and other organizations all over the country with some of the best artisan-roasted specialty-grade coffee available in the United States.

Cafe Campesino is a founding member of Cooperative Coffees, a green coffee importing organization committed to fair or alternative trading relationships between farmers and roasters. We are also a member of the Fair Trade Federation and Georgia Organics, as well as a certified B Corp.

The story of how Cafe Campesino grew out of Habitat for Humanity to be Georgia's first Fair Trade coffee company

Our Story

It all started when a wheelbarrow of dirt was dumped on a farmer’s coffee bush during a Habitat for Humanity trip to Guatemala. That incident sparked an idea that would grow to become Cooperative Coffees and later Cafe Campesino.

Principles are very important to us and our core values keep us energized. In January 2017, we became a Certified B Corporation, solidifying our commitment to our core values.
