Working with coffee communities

Impact

Explore case studies and stories from our sustainability projects

Volcafe works to be the world's best coffee partner. With our on-the-ground presence in many coffee countries, we have carried out dozens of sustainability projects – sometimes on our own and often with partners who share our commitment to a thriving, sustainable coffee business for all.

These projects address particular needs and ambitions in coffee communities, ranging from enabling regenerative agriculture and safeguarding local ecology, to building new communal facilities or promoting gender equity.

The stories below, sortable by the pillars of our Sustainability Strategy, give insights into some of these projects. We are always open to discussing how we can partner with our customers to make an impact for coffee communities. Get in touch!
