Honduras. The farmers consign a portion of their harvest to Thrive, and in return, the farmers gain access to local processing and logistics resources and they share in at least half of the final sales price. They are connecting the customer to the farm unlike any other model I've ever seen. Their sustainability model makes a positive impact to the farmer economically, environmentally & socially all of which are critical to having a lasting success for the producer. Finally, their purchasing model gives farmers a central role in the supply chain, which means better coffee for consumers and a better quality of life for the growers. With their efforts, the farmers are able to collect on average 4-6x the amount they would using the standard Fair Trade model.
Based on that information & the quality of the coffees we cupped, we elected to partner with Thrive Farmers and next month, we are planning to integrate a couple of Thrive's coffees into our lineup & we could not be more excited. In the mean time, check out the video below to see why we fell in love with Thrive & why we think you will too. Be blessed.
