Why We’re Different

Why we’re Different

Ethical Coffee



ETHICAL COFFEE:
OUR MODEL IS
GENERATIONAL CHANGE


First

– The Beans: We only purchase green, ethical coffee beans that are USDA Certified Organic and Shade-grown. USDA Certified Organic guarantees safety from harmful pesticides and the numerous health and birth defects they inflict on the coffee farmers and their families. Shade-grown coffee guarantees bird habitat, soil preservation, and the protection of the Rain forests – earth’s lungs!


Second

– The Price: By only purchasing ethical coffee that is fairly traded, Camano Island Coffee Roasters partners with you in giving a fair wage for a beautiful product. The difference is in enabling farmers to provide food, clothing, shelter, and an education for their children.

Third

Giving A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out: CICR partners with Agros Guatemala and other non-profit organizations to assist coffee farmers in purchasing their own land through low-interest or interest-free loans.

  • Independence – as landowners, farmers can command a better price for their delicious product.
  • Accountability – as landowners, farmers can decide for themselves whether to use dangerous pesticides or harmful agricultural practices like clear-cutting the Rainforest.
  • It Doesn’t End Here! – Agros Guatemala also helps farmers through education and water treatment programs. Now that’s something to drink to!


Fourth

The Biggest Factor in Generational Change – You: That’s right, you are the most important component for lasting change.

 

  • By supporting only ethical coffee that’s Certified Organic, Shade-Grown, and Fairly Traded, you preserve the environment and prevent human poisoning from pesticides.

 

  • By supporting ethical coffee that’s fairly traded, you know coffee farmers receive a fair wage — that’s life altering.

 

  • There’s power in your dollar — Use it! For every Coffee Lover’s Box shipment you receive from CICR, 4% is given back through our nonprofit partners Agros Guatemala, Food 4 Farmers and World Vision and other non-profit organizations.

“In 2000, we founded Camano Island Coffee Roasters with the simple philosophy that a business can change the world for good. Our vision was to combine our passion for ethical coffee with generational change in coffee growing regions. We believe that our company’s value is not solely in the quality of the ethical coffee that we roast, or in the people who grow it, but in the coffee lover (YOU) who drinks Camano Island Coffee.”
