Volcafe shares the values of our parent company, ED&F Man Commodities – Respect, Integrity, Meritocracy, Client Focus, and Entrepreneurship – and we seek to integrate these in all of work.

We are passionate about coffee and it shows. Many of our offices hold daily cuppings. Our field staff take pride in supporting coffee farmers, often sharing photos of the first coffee blossoms or a branchful of ripe red coffee cherries. More than a few of us are keen home roasters, too.



Equity, diversity and inclusion are ingrained in our culture, both for our own workplace and for our work in the coffee-growing communities that are the foundation of our business.

We are a multicultural workplace, with team members from diverse origins and identities. Our company values emphasise respect, and we are continuously seeking to make our workplace an inclusive environment where our people can be themselves. 

We value our colleagues' career development, offering mentorship and traineeship programmes that support them to grow and progress within our business. 

We have a strong track record of promoting internally and enabling staff to transfer among our offices and locations, wherever possible.

In our most recent employee engagement survey (2022), 88 percent of our colleagues participated. While we can always improve, we were pleased that so many Volcafe colleagues feel connected and positive about working with us:

  • 93 percent feel that 'Working here makes me want to do the best work I can'. 
  • 86 percent would recommend Volcafe as a good place to work to their friends and family.
  • 85 percent believe Volcafe is making progress on creating a more diverse and inclusive place to work.

We are all treated equally, we are given a work environment of camaraderie and we are given the opportunity to grow within the company.
