Ethically Sourced Coffee

What is it? Why is it Important? 

What is it?

When sourcing coffee ethically, both the grower and the environment are given full respect. It also provides roasters with more control over the quality and social responsibility of their beans.

Thanks to ethically sourcing coffee, there has been an increase in the preservation of large areas of forests and millions of workers have begun earning more than minimum wage.

Why is it important?

Supports strong farming communities

Red Seal Coffee understands the future of coffee is tied to the future of farmers and their communities. When sourcing coffee ethically, money goes straight to growers and farmers are able to make more money to support their communities.

This also means they're less likely to resort to bad farming practices, which corrupt the environment, in hopes of keeping their costs down.

Combats climate change

As a result of global warming, climates have become increasingly warmer, which hinders proper cultivation. Moving crops to a cooler area is often too expensive, leaving farmers with no choice but to clear their forests. This creates a vicious cycle as every time a tree is cut, carbon is released into the atmosphere, further heating the Earth.

To combat climate change, companies like Red Seal Coffee promise to respect both the grower and the environment.

Fresher premium tasting coffee

Did you know that coffee passes an average of seven hands from the moment it's produced until it reaches a consumer? For Red Seal Coffee there are only two exchanges, from the growers to us and from us to you.

What makes Red Seal Coffee Ethical?

Red Seal Coffee takes pride in conducting business responsibly, which is why coffee beans are sourced from independent growers and roasted in house. This means producers get paid fair wages for their beans, which in turn creates a sustainable source of high-quality beans for our coffee.

Roasting the beans in house also limits the amount of third parties involved in the process. This guarantees the beans are roasted in a facility that doesn't use unpaid labour or cut corners in the roasting process or production of the coffee.
