LWR has worked with coffee farmers and their cooperatives for years. Through this work, LWR has helped coffee farmers get quality coffee seeds, fertilizer and other materials to grow good quality coffee. LWR also helps cooperatives to provide more support and training to their farmers and access buyers willing to pay better prices. Through this work, many farmers around the world have been able to build stronger livelihoods with their coffee. Even still, market challenges remain.
LWR Farmers Market Coffee creates even more economic opportunities for farmers living in poverty around the world. Coffee farmers and their families not only benefit from the expertise and support of LWR, but also receive fair, stable, and predicatble up-front prices, along with a share of the profits from the sale of their coffee. For every pound of coffee purchased, THRIVE Farmers also donates 80 cents back to LWR to continue reaching out to farmers all over the world.
LWR is producing LWR Farmers Market Coffee in partnership with THRIVE Farmers. THRIVE partners with farmers to bring high-quality coffee beans from their farms and roast those beans into delicious coffee. Farmers are given a stable, predictable, and higher price upfront for their beans. What happens afterwards is what truly makes this model exciting. Farming communities receive additional profits after the coffee is sold. With LWR Farmers Market Coffee, farmers aren’t just suppliers of coffee beans, they are partners in the coffee business.
THRIVE Farmers shares LWR’s passion for giving coffee farmers new opportunities and a helping hand to their families and communities. LWR connects THRIVE Farmers to coffee farmers LWR supports around the world. THRIVE then partners directly with those farmers and roasts those beans into delicious coffee, and sells it to you. LWR and THRIVE work together to set goals every year so we can bring this beneficial partnership to more farmers.

Our care for farmers is matched by our care for the quality of their coffee. Through our long-term relationships with farmers and regular visits to their farms, we maintain an intimate knowledge of the coffee harvest and the quality of the beans.
We have a rigorous system for quality control from bean to cup, which involves testing quality multiple times before the coffee even leaves the country where it was produced, testing it again once it arrives in the U. S., and yet again after it is roasted before going to the consumer. THRIVE has two Coffee Quality Institute Q-graders on staff full-time to ensure the highest quality standards are met.
