    An Origin Story

    Crop to Cup's origin story began in Uganda in 2005;

    The company was founded to assist Ugandan farmers to improve their lives by making better coffee.

    Over the past decade Ugandan coffee has been on the rise;

    We are proud of our partners, and invite you to taste why.

    Okay Sparky, here's the deal

    There are roughly three ways to export coffee from Ethiopia. Most buy through the ECX auction - traceable to a region but varies year to year. You can source from a union - traceable to a smaller cooperative, but they sell out quickly at high premiums. Or purchase directly from private land-owners - diamond in the rough - this tactic is rare and risky, as finance and export duties require different skill-sets.

    Did you know?

    Bahasa was created only 40 years before it was adopted as the national language of Indonesia. In a country boasting 700+ native languages, this was enough time for a language less than a century old to develop an incredible array of accents. Expect the same from Indo's coffee crop as farmers break through the long tradition of bulking and blending, separate micro-lots, and express unique regional profiles.

    Ditch those preconceptions

    If you look past the estates, PNG is a place where isolated smallholder farmers are connected through a professional network of entrepreneurial buyers and advanced washing stations.

    This leads to an incredible variety waiting to be tapped; Eastern vs Western Highlands? That's just the tip of the iceberg!

    More than a peaberry

    Longtime backup singer for more famous northern plantations, Tanzania's

    Southern Highlands are starting to get their share of the spotlight. Some serious high-altitude, smallholding farmers, spread across a broad network of under-utilized washing stations, makes some regions rich in new and promising talent.

    Scouts are out; let's head to Mbeya and hit the road from there.

    Trigger Warning

    This is a jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, face-melting, mind-blowing coffee. It is also slightly addictive and in short supply; older trees lead to increasingly common low harvests, which increases competition for the best of the best. In Burundi purchasing more than just the top lots, paying premiums for quality, and committing to year-over-year relationships, are the keys to consistently getting the best beans each and every harvest.

    Estados Unidos de México

    Mexico is a collection of states, twelve of which grow coffee.

    In particular the Pacific Coast between Nyarit and Chiapas hides pockets of farmers eager to join the specialty coffee movement, but who are waiting for the right customers to make that make sense.

    We are here to find out what they are doing right.

    Or more specifically, who. Who is at the forefront of making Guatemala the place you go to find the best.

The Team

Over the years we have found that the best way to get great coffee is to invest in the people behind the beans.

That’s okay with us, because relationships are why we got into the coffee business in the first place.

If you are looking for easy access to good coffees that come from good people, we have some options in warehouse right now.

If you want to get more hands-on, we are here to facilitate; we love working with roasters who get involved.

If you tell us what you are looking to source then we'll arrange for relevant options from the mill to your cupping table,

with a direct connection back to contributing farms and farmers.
