About One Village Coffee

One Village Coffee started after a family trip to Africa & Honduras in the early 2000's. They saw the power of a Village - a community of people working together to better themselves and those around them. Coffee, which is deeply tied to the earth and has amazing powers in connecting people, quickly became a way for them to create their own village. Thus, One Village Coffee was born. Their mission since 2007 has been to connect growers, roasters, and the faithful coffee drinker, through their quality coffee and commitment to stewardship.

The farmers work hard to ensure a quality crop is harvested in season and sent along to One Village Coffee. In turn, One Village Coffee works hard by sample roasting & cupping a variety of single origin coffees, choosing only the beans that rise above the rest. From there, they dial in and monitor the roast profile, making sure each blend and single origin hits the flavor marks they’re aiming for. Their Licensed Q Grader, Director of Coffee & Production, and Roasters are meticulous and passionate about what coffees make it to the shelf.

When a coffee makes it through their rigorous sourcing process and joins the family of coffees that are offered, the work doesn't stop. Each single origin and blend is crafted in small-batches and roasted to order to get the freshest brew possible. They consistently chart, graph, cup, taste, tweak, roast & cup again to make sure each bean that gets packaged is the best they have to offer… one that is crafted for you to enjoy.

Being a B Corp places us within a community of other companies & individuals with similar values and goals. We all have the unifying concept of “using business as a force for good”, which continually inspires us. We realized that B Corporations’ concepts and ideals fit the very reason why One Village Coffee started, so it was a logical fit to go through the process of becoming certified.

The Change We Seek®

Inspired by the villages they visit, everything One Village Coffee does revolves around their commitment to quality coffee and stewardship. As one of the founding B Corporation certified companies in the country, One Village Coffee has always used the power of business to support social and environmental sustainability.

From the beginning, they have been a Fair Trade and USDA organically certified company. As a Fair Trade certified company, communities of growers are ethically compensated and cared for. Taking it a step farther with their annual campaign, they give $1 from the sale of the Artist Blend coffee to build bee colonies in the COMSA co-op in Marcala, Honduras. At home, they’ve been able to donate coffee for over 100,000 meals in Philadelphia through a local homeless organization. They are also certified organic insuring that their growing practices support the health of the farmers, the earth, and the coffee drinker. Just as importantly, their 6oz and 12oz coffee bags are biodegradable and can be composted – going back into the ground from where the coffee came.

What makes us a better company?
