The Coffee Collective is a Copenhagen-based micro roastery with four coffee shops, wholesale partnerships and an international webshop.

A strong set of values powers their overall purpose: To create exciting coffee experiences that bring better returns to the farmer.

Through long-term relationships with farmers they work for creating financial sustainability with transparency in pricing at the core.

Dealing directly with farmers with annual visits, paying higher prices, and publishing those prices directly on the bags have been key instruments in creating transparency in a non-transparent market.

At the other end of the chain, their baristas are part of a union agreement (3F) and wind energy powers their coffee shops, reducing the CO2 footprint by up to 40%.

Their yearly Sustainability Report was the first step towards B Corp Certification and the next step is to continuously improve their impact on the world in general and coffee in particular.

Overall, the Coffee Collective pursues to be sustainable in a broad sense. It derives from their belief that it is extremely important to show respect to farmers, to their employees, to their customers as well as to the environment and society in general: To conduct business in a responsible manner.
