SaucyBean kickstarts its first coffee of the series, ‘Facepalm’ in collaboration with the Orang Utan Coffee Project (OCP).
Back in 2012, the OCP along with 40 smallholder farmers, entered into a pioneering relationship. The farmers would protect and preserve the surrounding tropical rainforest whilst working closely with the OCP to boost their coffees’ quality. In exchange the OCP would pay a premium for the farmers’ coffee should they meet strict guidelines set.
Today, as a result of the project’s amazing success, OCP numbers more than 230 smallholder farmers who are enjoying a better quality of life and producing better and better coffee. Not only that, the local environment benefits too, with OCP donating 0.50 Euros/Kilo of all coffee sold to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.
25% of SaucyBean profit is pre-pledge to their NGO partners through their coffee linked to causes model.
