To walk with our farming partners as they strive to improve their lives
Our coffee comes from both the Christian settlers and from various Indigenous Peoples (IP) of the Philippines who are working together in accordance with Peace and Reconciliation principles and practices. With the help of PeaceBuilders Community, an NGO whom we partner with, the farmers are trained to plant, grow, and process their Arabica coffee and civet coffee in accordance with world-class standards. Coffee for Peace, then, buys their green beans at a fair traded price.
Most of the IPs in the Philippines are struggling to preserve their respective cultures, protect their ancestral lands, and to govern themselves in accordance with their various traditions. The term they use to describe their vision of the future is “the right to self determination of the Indigenous Peoples.”
Coffee for Peace is committed to support their journey towards achieving the IP’s right to self determination.
