COMMITTED TO SOCIALLY SUSTAINABLE DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
We don’t consume coffee in the same ways that our grandparents did so why are people still sourcing it like them?
Those Coffee People take a unique approach to source the most remarkable green coffee beans for the modern day roasters and importers by :
- Eliminating the uncertainty of large-scale wholesalers and establishing direct trade contacts, so you know exactly where your coffee was grown and harvested, and by whom
- Engaging in the ultimate knowledge sharing process by gaining first hand expertise and experience across the supply chain
- Offering complimentary marketing services to all of our customers in order for them to share their coffee’s story with their final customer
We know that coffee is a story, and we are here to help
you make your story extraordinary.
Our offices are located in La Fabrica MDE, the hub of Impact. Impact is a community of independent projects in the coffee supply chain including farms, cherry centers, roasteries, cafes and Those Coffee People as the exporting and commercialization arm, amongst others. We have specialized experts that can assist with every stage of every model, giving us the chance to offer end-to-end services related to specialty coffee.

“Working with Those Coffee People has been a very important advantage for us because we count on them to carry new processes in the farm. We don’t depend on an international price, we have a different added value, they pay us really good, we know they are counting on us for the coffee we deliver and they have been key for the transformation that the farm has been going through in the last years.” – Manuel from Finca Las Brisas.
“As coffee growers today we are fulfilling a dream: to put our coffee on the international market.

“Honestly we are very grateful with Those Coffee People because they made our dream came true. We tried to bring our coffee to USA for five years and we were having issues with the direct trade.

We are so happy with them, with Jennifer, Daniel and everyone in the team and we are looking forward to keep working with them in the future. ” – Sebastián from Angostura, Colombia / North Carolina, USA.
