As small business owners and coffee exporters, we recognize our power to make a positive difference in the world, and as a consumer, you hold immense power, too. Every dollar you spend supports something, whether you’re conscious of it or not. So why not use that power to support a cause you believe in? Our Tanzania Kilimanjaro coffee is special because, beyond its amazing taste, it holds an entire movement: a mission to empower coffee producers and give them the tools they need to thrive. When you choose Grand Paradé, you’re getting more than coffee; you’re aiding our efforts to uplift the coffee producers who, in the face of the climate crisis, need our support more than ever.
Because of its high altitude and magical combination of environmental factors, Mt. Kilimanjaro produces some of the most incredible coffee in the world. We get ours specifically from the 850-acre Shari Estate: a sustainable farm that’s been passed through the Watamu family for generations. By building a direct relationship with the coffee producers at the Shari Estate, we’re able to ensure that they’re receiving fair wages and the tools they need to thrive, all while producing quality coffee.
