The mainstream coffee industry is riddled with a multitude of social and environmental harms. Our partnership with Caravan Coffee was an intentional choice to counteract these exploitative practices. All coffee beans that enter through Caravan Coffee’s doors must adhere to the strictest of social and environmental standards. This screening process is known as their social, environmental and traceability (SET) filter.
This filter ensures that coffee growing communities are supported at the ground level, environmental consciousness is prioritized, and all coffee beans are traceable to single farms or community cooperatives. Because of this, utilizing the SET filter mitigates both the environmental and social harms associated with mass producing coffee beans for conventional coffee chains and franchises.
