At Café Britt, we care about more than just creating great coffee (although we do care about that an awful lot!). We also care about making the world a better place and are committed to sustainable growing and harvesting practices that honor the planet and benefit the communities we work with. Our business model emphasizes the efficient use of natural resources by preventing pollution and reducing our impact on the environment.
From the start, Café Britt has looked for ways to reduce its environmental impact and increase benefits for our employees and their families. We’ve set up metrics to let us know how we’re doing towards achieving our goals. We promote green living through recycling initiatives and company-wide green practices among our partners. We're also committed to building up the communities where our business operates by promoting educational and cultural programs and enforcing a strict fair pay policy.
We work with coffee producers committed to sustainable practices, and we contribute to their continuous improvement through technical assistance programs.
Café Britt currently recycles about 60% of the total waste we generate, and we continually strive to improve our waste management program.
We have partnered with NGOs that support education, culture, and small business initiatives.
Café Britt’s production methods promote a rational use of water and energy, and we look for ways to reduce our environmental impact.
