Davis Cafe Gives Face To Coffee Farmers
DAVIS (CBS13) – Pachamama Coffee Cooperative Davis in Davis aims to put a face to your cup of coffee.
“People want to know who their farmer is,” said CEO of Pachamama Thaleone Tremain.
And now they can. Displayed across the wall of the quaint java joint are farmers – each an equal owner of the cafe.
“The farmers own the coffee until you’re drinking it there’s nothing more direct than that,” said Moisan, Director of outreach at Pachamama.
The coffee comes direct from five countries across the globe.
“There’s a lot of money in coffee,” Thaleon said.
But, for the first time ever, farmers are getting a shot to see more of that money.
“They capture the profit all the way down the chain,” Mollie said.
Before, Tremain said farmers reportedly only get a fraction of the profits from their beans.
“It’s better for everyone farmer gets better pay the consumer gets a better cup of coffee,” Thaleon said.
Each certified organic premium coffee cup is brewed fresh right in front of you at Pachamama
“it simply tastes better,” Thaleon said.
And people are taking notice.
“It’s great it’s been packed. On the weekends and every day, we see more regular customers,” Thaleon said.
The coffee comes directly from Peru, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico and Ethiopia. If you’re interested in trying it for yourself, the coffee shop is at 521 1st Street in Davis.
