We are very proud to be brewing coffee beans from THRIVE Farmers during our 2013 conference. This Georgia-based company was founded during a time of adversity – the financial crisis of 2008 – and built on a strong sense of fairness for coffee farmers everywhere. It now processes beans grown by more than 300 farmers from six regions in three countries and generates returns to the farmers that exceed Fair Trade by up to 10 times through its innovative “vertically-integrated-supply-chain coffee” approach.
THRIVE Farmers’ vision is to not only transform the lives of tens of thousands of coffee farmers and eliminate unnecessary layers in the coffee supply chain, but revolutionize the coffee industry. They believe when you “know who grows” the premium Arabica coffee that starts your day, you can enjoy your cup in a new way.
THRIVE Farmers has generously offered to donate 20% of proceeds to TEDxPeachtree for every purchase from the THRIVE Store online using the promo code “TEDxPeachtree” at checkout.
We thinks theirs is an Idea Worth Spreading, and we hope you do too. If you support their vision and ours, we hope you will consider making your next coffee purchase at THRIVE Farmers.
