Supporting the communities we work with

At Omwani we know that you can't take something without giving back. That's why we're always looking for ways we can help support our processing partners outside of buying their coffee.

We approach them openly, and let them decide what would help their community most, and then we find a way to get it done.

Come back soon, when we will have more information on upcoming projects and how you can help out.

Our Values

Transparency

We pride ourselves on transparent trade: everything we share we do so openly and honestly, and we look for similar values in our partners.

Fairness

We want to ensure equality and integrity across the entirety of the supply chain we work in. Putting consideration into every action we take, and learning from our mistakes.

Quality

We only source the highest quality coffee possible. We measure quality on taste, profile, economic impact and the story of the origin. 

Honesty

When we say something, it needs to be the truth: no smoke and mirrors or corporate half-truths, and when something isn't clear, we explain it.
