Vega Coffee is creating a new coffee experience as the first specialty coffee roasted at origin and delivered directly to customers in the US – within 5 days of roasting and without any middlemen. Vega’s team is made of smallholder farmers who are specialized roasters, carefully trained in all aspects of coffee production from seed to cup. By taking on more of the supply chain, Vega farmer roasters earn 4x more income, and learn skills that will pay dividends throughout their careers. Meanwhile, Vega customers are part of a transparent and evolved supply chain that delivers only rare, premium coffee from Nicaragua.
GFE is proud to partner with Vega to increase economic opportunities in local farming communities through job creation, skills training and professional opportunities for women (over 90% of Vega’s farmer roasters are women).
