Cafe Monte Alto is committed to fair trade; fair pricing at each level in the product chain — sustaining the farmers so availability of fine specialty coffee can continue, while maintaining environmentally sound practices at the agricultural level.
Cafe Monte Alto is dedicated to paying farmers a fair price for their coffee, so they, as in the past, can provide for their workers and communities. Most farmers are paid less for a pound of coffee than the average cost of a cup of coffee. Let farmers make a decent living without depending on donations.
We concentrate our sales efforts on direct marketing so we can also ensure a fair price for the end consumer. Cafe Monte Alto is also committed to coffee people. In 2004 we established “Cooperu, Inc.” a non-profit organization to help workers and their families.
