With a goal to reduce chemical fertilizer use by 50%, each grower received a composting structure and earthworms to transform organic waste, coffee pulp, and animal manure into natural fertilizer. They hope to entirely mitigate coffee pulp waste and reactivate soil microbiota through the application of compost and foliar sprays.

  • 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 $280,000 to Seeds projects.
