Otus Coffee was started with a vision to source 100% of our coffee direct-from-farm. This is the only way we would truly be able to ensure that the farms are receiving fair prices for the crop they work so hard to cultivate. With this vision, we are also seeking to provide some of the best and affordable coffees from all over the world.
Our first direct relationship was established in October of 2019. It can be difficult for small coffee companies like ourselves to buy direct for all coffee offerings but as we grow, this will change.
Please check out the video below from our first direct farm relationship which is located in the New Oriente region of Guatemala, Bethel Farm. Bethel recently cut ties with some large coffee companies as the price they demanded were just too low. The result was a very low quality of life for the farmers and their workers. They are now selling all over the United States to small and medium size coffee companies.
We proudly donate $1 for every bag we sell directly to the Bethel farm and hope all of our products can soon be the same.
