Mission and Values

Cafe Campesino founder Bill Harris

Our Purpose

Partner with small-scale coffee farmers, connect communities, and inspire conscious consumption... one great cup of coffee at a time.

We do this by:

  • Roasting and brewing fantastic organic, fair trade coffee;
  • Building long-term friendships and direct business relationships with farmers and their communities;
  • Getting more money into the hands of hard working coffee farmers;
  • Working to help our Customers to succeed; and
  • Building a community within and around our company - one smile, helping hand, and pat on the back at a time.

Our Vision

A business world in which open, honest, fair, and direct relationships connect and positively impact producers and consumers and everyone in between.

In January 2017, we became a Certified B Corporation, solidifying our commitment to our core values. As a B Corp, we measure the impact of our decisions on our key stakeholders- customers, farmers, employees and owners. To become a B Corp, we were evaluated on our stewardship of the environment, our treatment of employees, our relationships with suppliers and our processes for accountability and transparency. Through day-to-day operations, we work to make the world a better place, and like some 1,800 other B Corps worldwide, we believe business can be a force for positive social and environmental change.
