How we source and whom we source from is extremely important to us.
West End Coffee is constantly searching for ethical plantations where we buy only the highest quality green beans from Rainforest Alliance certified plantations. In other words, by sourcing beans from a plantation that devotes itself to abiding by the Rainforest Alliance guidelines, we know that we are making a positive difference by helping farmers make a fair wage and protecting the environment. Rainforest Alliance certified plantations ensure that their workers are properly compensated and that their operations are sustainable to the environment.
Our actions are guided by our values of respect and quality. Knowing that the world is far more interrelated than we could possibly imagine, our ethics goes beyond our customers to the broader circle of community, country, and humanity.
