Umwihariko is committed to ensuring sustainable coffee production as well as a reliably fair working environment for its partner farmers and workers. Fairtrade certification is the globally recognised standard for fair coffee production, and Umwihariko has partnered with Koakaka Cooperative based upon the organisation’s fair work practices.
We want to play an active role in boosting local economies while ensuring that our practices remain transparent and adhere to global standards. The result: farmers who are able to properly support their families working to create a delicious product to share with you.
Koakaka Cooperative maintains a Fairtrade Certification through FLO-Cert. Koakaka holds a 1st Grade Score for Fairtrade Standard for Coffee for Small Producer Organizations.
