Drying Infrastructure and Quality Training

2024 Seeds Fund Recipient

2024 Seeds Fund Recipient

The ANEI Cooperative has been awarded a 2024 Seeds Grant to install coffee drying beds on smallholder farmers’ farms and complete a coffee processing workshop focused on good post-harvest practices. Renowned for training their members in organic agronomy practices, ANEI promotes an agroforestry-style of production that enhances environmental sustainability.

With this grant, ANEI aims to improve post-harvest processing and drying methods to ensure the high quality of their coffee, thereby enabling their members to access premium pricing. The grant will fund the purchase of materials needed to construct the drying systems and support personnel for the training sessions. By enhancing these aspects, ANEI not only boosts the quality of their coffee but also strengthens the economic stability of their farming communities.

  • Seeds Program

    Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $450,000 to Seeds projects.
