Bridgehead Coffees are fairly traded, organic and shade-grown. Bridgehead creates a better deal for small-scale farmers. Small-scale farmers grow much of the world’s coffee. But world coffee prices now at a 20 year low mean that farmers are receiving less than the cost of production for their beans. Many farmers have had to walk away from their farms. Other farmers have been forced to clear-cut their land in order to increase crop production. Such intensive production comes at a cost to the environment.

Bridgehead buys directly from small-scale coffee farmers organized in co-operatives and guarantees them a fair price, well above the world market price. Farmers avoid dealing with “coyotes” or local intermediary traders who control the economic activities of local villages and exploit farmers. Higher coffee incomes mean local communities can build schools, health centres and roads. Farmers are also able to grow alternative cash and food crops in addition to coffee.
