Sip Coffee Inc
Specialty Food Artisan
Sip Coffee Inc produces just-in-time freshly-roasted coffee with a social benefit. It was founded as a Benefit Corporation in Virginia to broaden the awareness and uptake of Bird Friendly coffees while supporting environmental restoration initiatives in source countries. These freshly-roasted coffees are triple certified at the farm and importer level: Smithsonian Institution Bird Friendly, Fair Trade, and Organic. The requirements of the Smithsonian Institution Bird Friendly certification leads to the preservation of critical forest ecosystems, through quantitative criteria that specify: 1) species diversity on coffee farms (at least 10 species plus a backbone species); 2) height of trees (40'), and 3) percent of tree canopy (40% after pruning). Roasted coffees are from long-standing cooperatives with over 1,000 growers each, in Peru and Honduras. All packaging is 100% made in USA and fully compostable at home per ASTM standards. Sip Coffee Inc. is committed to donating 5% of sales (not profits!) to ecologically-minded projects in Peru and Honduras to further sustainability efforts in country.
