Carbon, Climate, and Coffee Projects
Heine Brothers is a founding member of Cooperative Coffees, a fair-trade green coffee buying cooperative that exists to import high-quality, organic green coffee from small-scale farmer organizations to build long-term relationships and foster fair and equitable trading practices. Coop Coffee’s goal is to make coffee growing a sustainable and beneficial endeavor for farmer families and their communities.
Through membership in Coop Coffees, Heine Brothers is able to work with coffee farming coops directly, not just on purchasing high-quality organic coffee at above fair-trade prices, but also on sustainability, community projects, cultural exchanges, and transparency.

In 2019, Heine Brothers funds are going to 8 coffee producer cooperatives, working on 8 different projects:
