Transparency Report
 

Transparency motivates our decisions, and, not only to do we try to embody it, we seek it out in our partners.

We published our first Counter Culture Direct Trade Certification (CCDTC) Transparency Report in 2009. The report  aims to give a succinct, transparent summary of our financial and personal relationships with the producer partners whose coffees received CCDTC in the previous year.


The exercise in sharing our successes and challenges proved so valuable that we have continued to publish a Transparency Report each year, and we encourage you to read them all to track how our coffees have evolved.
