Cafe Campesino unites coffee lovers who believe they can contribute to making the world a better place. Farmer-owned cooperatives throughout Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia supply Cafe Campesino and its Florida-based roastery, Sweetwater Organic Coffee, with exceptional fair trade, organic-certified green coffees.

Then, Cafe Campesino and Sweetwater showcase the farmer’s attention to quality by roasting and supplying their coffees to restaurants, natural food stores, coffee shops, universities and individual consumers across the United States. Cafe Campesino also operates a retail coffee shop in Americus, Georgia.

Shortening the coffee supply chain, connecting consumers to small-scale farmers, sustaining meaningful trade relationships and engaging customers in the coffee industry has been at the heart of Cafe Campesino’s work for nearly 20 years.

Over time, meaningful trade relationships- fueled by conscious consumers- change lives. Dirt roads get paved in remote coffee communities, cooperative leaders learn to better negotiate coffee contracts, small farmers develop organic practices that increase yields, roastery employees learn Spanish to better communicate with producers, and home consumers, from time-to-time, turn into wholesale customers.
