Chacun Son Café est un torréfacteur et distributeur de solutions café qui, par son modèle économique, génère des fonds pour abonder un programme de microcrédit One Cup One Cent qui participe de faire sortir les populations rurales des pays de la ceinture subtropicale du seuil de pauvreté. Ce modèle s’inscrit dans les objectifs 2030 de l’ONU et ambitionne d’impacter positivement 1 million de personnes d’ici 2025. Le projet Chacun Son Café a été créé en 2005 dans un contexte où la seule façon connue pour faire un bon café à la maison est la capsule. Son ambition : être une alternative militante à la capsule notamment pour ce qu’elle représente, en offrant un autre paradigme face à l'industrialisation de notre alimentation. Chacun Son Café est depuis lors le chef de file du mouvement anti-capsule, incarné par le hashtag #IAmACapsuleKiller. Chacun Son Café adresse à la fois le particulier et les entreprises pour la consommation du café au bureau, en valorisant les cultures et les traditions de préparations face à l’uniformisation de nos gestes dans notre rituel, la diversité des saveurs et la mise en valeur de l’arôme dans notre expérience sensorielle face à la standardisation des goûts. Chacun Son Café torréfie des cafés de spécialité et crée des cafés d’exceptions.
