Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Company is a roaster, wholesaler and retailer of 100% organic, fair trade, specialty coffee, located in Orange, Massachusetts. Dean’s Beans mission has been clear for over 25 years: to use high-quality specialty coffee as a vehicle for progressive change throughout the coffeelands of Asia, Africa and the Americas. This is done through activism, ecological responsibility, and innovative development programs with direct-trade cooperative partners.

Dean’s Beans only sources beans from small-farming communities and coops, largely made up of indigenous peoples working hard to maintain their culture and lifestyles in a hostile world. They have been 100% certified organic since their inception, and are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation.

Dean’s Beans works with every coop to co-create development projects through their award-winning People Centered Development (PCD) program. PCD is an approach to international development that focuses on the real needs of local communities for the necessities of life (clean water, health care, income generation). This is an integral and fundamental part of their business with all their grower partners.
