What is Direct Trade?
The heart of this concept is to not just be fair, but be good to coffee producers through a mutually beneficial business relationship. This starts with a closer relationship between the producer and buyer.
This Honduras coffee is from our friends at Opalaca Trading who work alongside Honduran coffee farmers, including Nolasco Lemuz. For a small roasting company, it is difficult to meet producers as well as navigate exporting, importing, and customs all on our own. For us, partnering with Opalaca Trading makes it possible while minimizing the steps taken to get coffee from point A to point B. We can best achieve the common goal of high-quality and directly-traded coffee together. Cheers to this and future Direct Trade coffees!
