Our commitment to quality goes beyond our coffee to improving the lives of the farmers who have grown our coffee for generations. 


Meet the Farmers

THE MARADIAGA FAMILY

"WE KNOW THAT COFFEE WILL SERVE US IN THE FUTURE, AND FOR THAT REASON, ALL THAT WE HAVE LEARNED, WE WILL APPLY."

- Camilo Maradiaga

Poor growing conditions and the threat of a devastating leaf fungus almost destroyed the Maradiaga family’s coffee farm in Nicaragua. Now, the farm is flourishing for this 11-member family since they participated in the Better Coffee Harvest Project, a program that aims to improve productivity and revenues for farmers in developing countries.

THE BAUTISTA FAMILY

"BEFORE, THE MEN DID THESE ACTIVITIES, BUT THAT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY. IF THEY ARE NOT AROUND, WE CAN DO IT OURSELVES."

- Yasmina Bautista

Juana Bautista was almost out of options to save the farm she inherited from her parents. Now, the coffee trees on the farm are growing back better than ever, and she and her family have been able to establish additional planting areas with the techniques they learned from the Better Coffee Harvest Project. 

THE DUARTE ORDOÑEZ FAMILY

"OUR FAMILY KNOWS THAT OUR SONS WILL CONTINUE WORKING ON OUR COFFEE FARM FOR YEARS TO COME. WE SEE A DIFFERENCE WITH WHAT WE DID BEFORE AND WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW WITH THE PROJECT’S HELP."

- Estela Ordoñez

Gregorio Duarte and his wife Estela Sanchez Ordoñez, along with 12 family members, live in a small adobe home on their 5.2 acre farm. After participating in the Better Coffee Harvest Project they are seeing a significant difference and have been able to grow stronger coffee tree varieties. 

COMMITTED TO PURCHASING COFFEE RESPONSIBLY

Folgers also is committed to purchasing green coffee in a responsible manner. At the Folger Coffee Company, we have extensive internal processes and controls that help honor this commitment. By working with coffee suppliers who are equally passionate about human rights, environmental practices, and safety procedures, and through our work with UTZ Certified to make green-coffee purchases, we are continually introducing sustainable coffee practices to enable a better future for all.

PROTECTING OUR NATURAL RESOURCES

Working with World Coffee Research (WCR), we're continually seeking solutions to meet the world's growing consumption of coffee while protecting our natural resources. This includes finding solutions and strategies that address unique environmental conditions for coffee production, including climate change, disease and insect pressures, and aging tree stock.
