We founded Zion Coffee Co to advance the lives of small coffee farmers and their surrounding communities.
We purchase our coffee through a direct-trade model with individual farmers and small cooperatives. Our investment in these farmers goes beyond paying a fair price for their hard work and excellent crop. We build relationships with local leaders to develop the communities in which they live and we invest by providing project funding and microloans for equipment, tools, facilities and educational resources.
Our projects are done in collaboration with the farmer, not for the farmer. We focus on identifying entrepreneurial and hard working farmers with a vision, and provide a channel for them to participate in new markets.
Our coffee is exceptional. What differentiates Zion is the transparency in our coffee, knowing exactly how and where the coffee was grown and having personal relationships with the coffee farmers.
Our passion is to tell life stories about the other side of the cup and connect coffee lovers to the farmers.
