Seam Coffee is proud to be the South African partner for Raw Material, giving us and any interested coffee roaster seeking ethical & sustainable coffee (the greater impact makes it worth sharing this relationship) access to the most incredible coffee that's helping to build coffee growing communities in Colombia, Mexico, Timor-Leste, Rwanda and Burundi.
This also happens to be the exact same coffee you will find on the shelves of top roasters like Watchhouse, Redbank, Crankhouse, Caravan, Pharmacie, Assembly and Colonna in the UK, Bonanza Coffee in Germany, Five Senses in Australia, Obscura Coffee in Japan, Flight Coffee in New Zealand and Raw Coffee in Dubai just to name a few.
If maximising a producer’s income is important to you, you’re in the right place
Raw Material is a social enterprise
100% of the profit we generate goes to the producers we represent globally.
We work with a growing network of smallholder farmers, alongside dedicated global coffee buyers to facilitate trade at stable, sustainable prices while improving coffee quality, yields, and community outcomes.
Did you know, that almost half of the smallholder coffee producers globally live below the poverty line?
And of this group, 22% live in extreme poverty. Meanwhile, the value of the specialty coffee market will double to reach 80 billion USD by 2025. For us, this is an absurd reality.
We do things differently. By working together, a producer’s profits can be maximised through the coffee you buy. We maximise the impact coffee can have.
100% of the profit we generate goes to producers, directly through payments for coffee and through community-level investments.
Following the disastrous effects of the global pandemic, the decision to put producer welfare at the centre of your buying choices is vital.
Economic freedom through coffee is achievable in our lifetime.
Lets get to work.
