Empatia Coffee

Empatia – the coffee that pours back

Did you know that most coffee farmers do not turn a profit? In countries like Columbia, where over 10% of the countries population is employed by the 550,000 coffee bean farms are struggling to turn a profit due to ever increasing production costs and low market prices. Empatia, a new coffee bean company, is striving to help out the everyday bean farmers in these struggling areas.

According to the International Coffee Organization (ICO), if you factor in depreciation of farm assets “there were only four crop years in the ten-year period [2006-2015] in which total profits were greater than or equal to zero.”(Assessing the economic sustainability of coffee growing – ICO, Sep 2016)

There may not be a solution that is obtainable right now, but we can take great strides in moving forward to fixing this issue. Empatia Coffee is giving back 15% of their profits to the farmers they work with in addition to paying premiums for our beans in excess of Fair Trade prices.

As a daily coffee drinker, I have come to appreciate the fresh ground beans turned into caffeinated bliss. I love taking that moment just to sip and breath in a new day. With 2 small children, I need to make the most of my time and that includes the choices I make. I would rather have an enjoyable, deep flavored cup of coffee over a low cost, grainy cup of coffee.

Monthly Empatia will offer a new bag of beans that features a different and exciting flavor profile.  This subscription services (or one-time purchase) gives you the chance to try a different coffee from varying places around the globe. The beans are NOT flavor infused, but instead are treated and grown in such a way that the natural aromas and flavors will be bold enough for you to taste.  The month that MamatheFox received was the Finca La Cabaña – from Sevilla, Valle Del Cauca in Columbia. These beans were amazing! Opening the bag you could smell how fresh and clean they were, as if they were roasted that morning. I ground some and made my first pot. My husband, who doesn’t typically drink coffee, even had to try a cup. He loved the flavor and found it very soothing. I cannot say enough nice things about Empatia Coffee. If you know a coffee lover, or are one yourself, so yourself a favor and try out at least 1 month worth of beans. This makes a perfect gift for family and friends.

Need that end of school year gift for teacher – give them a subscription to Empatia!

When you receive a monthly subscription box (shown above) from Empatia, you will also be sent a 2-sided colored card featuring the coffee bean farmer that will receive some of the 15% give back funds. It is so welcoming and reassuring to see the face of the person who will benefit from your purchase. With additional facts about the farm, the farmer and a peek into their lives. It also includes details about the beans you are brewing, such as the elevation which it was grown, how it was treated (dried/roasted) and how large their farm is. When you drink your lovely cup or coffee or espresso you can feel a connection and an appreciation I have not found in other coffee’s.

    I LOVE coffee but have realized that not all coffees taste the same! I love that this is roasted to bring out the natural flavors of the beans! SO very cool that the company gives back too!

    I would love to try this coffee. That is absolutely fantastic that they give back to their farmers. How is it possible with the coffee consumption nowadays that a coffee farmer can’t turn a profit, definitely something wrong with that, someone is making that money.

    I had no idea the coffee farmers worked at such a low profit margin. It’s good to see companies that try to help.

    It was interesting to learn more about the coffee growers and the lack of profit. Pretty amazing when I see the cost of coffee continually rising.

    I LOVE the mug pictured above and would love to try this brand. We ordered a coffee from a business that sent the beans 24 hrs after roasting- and it tasted very clean, as you said. Easy to drink black,

    a lot of great information here, what surprised me was that they don’t make a profit. You would think with so much coffee drank and made. But this is a good thing they do
