Changing the world. One cup at a time.

Hi! We are Marie and Michaël. With our social startup we’re trying to change the world to the better little by little. Cup by cup. That’s why we want to make sustainable decisions in your everyday life as easy as possible. And (hopefully) every day starts with a good cup of coffee!

More than fair.

We trade directly with smallholders and you finance social projects for the coffee farmers’ kids with each of your coffee packages.

better than bio

Better than organic.

Your coffee grows in Ethiopian mountain forests where it orginated. In harmony with nature your coffee protects the region’s biodiversity.

200 percent transparent

CO2-neutral delivery

From the farmers, for the farmers

Direct. Sustainable. Fair.

We buy your coffee directly from smallholder farmers. And pay a significantly higher price than standard fair trade prices for their wonderful forest coffee. Additionally, around 1CHF per package go to our social projects for the coffee farmers’ kids. Do you want to see that with your own eyes and meet the farmers personally? Come with us to Ethiopia!

Good for environment & climate

Better than organic. And CO2-neutral.

Your coffee grows in the midst of its natural ecosystem. No need for chemicals or irrigation, simply in the forest. That’s how it protects the region’s original biodiversity. Our capsules degrade completely in the compost and build the basis for new life together with the coffee grounds. Last but not least, we compensate your coffee’s CO2 footprint through planting trees is the arid regions of Ethiopia.

Truly good coffee

Flavors through traditional roasting

For really good coffee you need huge old trees: In the shadow the coffee has enough time to develop its full aroma potential – and that is greater than in a good red wine! Hand picked by the smallholder farmers only the really ripe coffee cherries are collected one by one. And here in Switzerland the beans are roasted in the traditional drum roaster to tickle out the perfect flavors.
