IMPCT Coffee - Finca Chacaya, Guatemala


We're always looking to do things just a little bit better and our coffees are no exception. Our "Farm to Future" coffees have been roasted in collaboration with Cafe LuGuo, easily one of Taiwan's top "third wave" roasters. 

Fair Trade specifies a price of $1.40 per pound paid to farmers; a $0.20 premium over market price. We source our coffee directly from low-income and aboriginal farmers and pay them 10-30 times the premium they'd receive for being Fair Trade certified.

Although much of that surplus will spill over into the community we believe that ethical sourcing means taking an active role in improving the communities who grow our amazing coffee. We re-invest 100% of the profits from every bag of coffee we sell into our Playcare and Weekend Playcare programs. What does this mean? Building more quality community owned and operated schools to serve at-risk and low-income communities. 

This particular coffee way grown at Finca Chacaya in Guatemala (read more about this farm here). Guatemala is the home of our just opened Playcare in the nearby farming community of Villa Canales. The profits from this particular coffee with be used to provide scholarships for the children in those communities and pooled to provide start-up capital for the next Playcare in the area.
