Project Alianza is a development project that supports coffee farmers by providing agricultural education and access to secure, ethical supply chains. We help the most vulnerable farmers – those who do not have access to other programs (like Fair Trade), due to geographic isolation or inability to produce sufficient quantities of coffee.
We accomplish this by building partnerships between those who remain most vulnerable and well-established farms in close proximity. Currently, we are partnering with a medium-sized family-owned coffee farm in Nicaragua with Rain Forest Alliance Certification. In 2014, Alianza will elevate the role of 25 small coffee producers in Nicaragua and once we’ve established a sustainable framework, we will scale and build partnerships with other farms in Central America and East Asia.
