Jeff and Emily Brooks started GIV COFFEE about 3 years ago. Their business philosophy and ethics are what motivated them to visit the region of Simalungun where Leo and I farm. They already donate part of the sale of each bag of roasted coffee to charity, an amazing and generous practice. Now they want to know that the green beans they purchase are also sourced from suppliers who are committed to the farmers and communities that grow the coffee. They found us at our presentation in Boston SCAA on smallholder farmers and decided to visit us and the mill in Simalungun owned by Volkopi, Volcafe Group.

Thanks Jeff and Emily for your commitment to making a difference where you can.
