“From its inception, La Colombe has been a leading proponent of ethical long-term trade with coffee growers as well as a key supporter of certification organizationssuch as Fair Trade Alliance, Rainforest Alliance, Certified Organic, Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and others. More importantly, however, is their direct influence on the well being of our coffee growing communities – from water resource development and borehole drilling to building and maintaining schools and clinics and supporting hundreds of orphaned children. La Colombe recognizes that as coffee roasters they occupy a unique place in the world, a spot on the narrow bridge between the developing world and some of the most affluent consumers on the planet. This role is more than a responsibility or a popular philanthropic logo. It is a rare privilege seldom afforded.”
