We are in our 9th year buying from Eco Cafe Mill, Haiti (you can purchase coffee here). We pay the mill in Ranquitte about 300% over the Fair Trade minimum, which then gets distributed to mill employees, to cover mill maintenance costs, and to purchase cherry from farmers in Le Nord du Ayiti. In 2017/2018, a prolonged and sever drought struck northern Haiti causing coffee trees to drop their flowers. Flowers turn into cherry, which in turn is depulped and the seeds are washed and dried; these seeds are the "beans" we roast. The deflowering meant no beans, which translates to a year without income from coffee.
100% of donations will go to Christian Flights International who has worked in Ranquitte for the last 40 years and will distribute donations to mill workers and families in the community.
