Coffee Uplifts People
Transparency and Evolution
We represent a significant point in the coffee industries evolution and transparency of its origins. With a name like Coffee Uplifts People we obviously speak more to coffee’s promise than its legacy.
Transparently, coffee’s stained history is riddled with everything but upliftment, from a colonial, slave-built economy that relied on European and American trade with Central and South America, the Caribbean, Asia and its African origins. Additionally, a long checkered history of trade exploitation to a more recent symbolization of forthcoming gentrification to inner-city American neighborhoods, the narrative around the coffee cherry that we commercially prize for its bean has come a long way from its beautiful origins of Ethiopia.
