Our diverse and highly committed global team is the key to achieving our goals.
The key to our success is our team. We are a multicultural group of about 250 employees, mostly made up of local experts working in coffee-producing countries. Our headquarters are based in Germany, and the organization is active worldwide. What drives us is our dedication to making a real difference by strengthening the self-determination of farmers. We provide help for self-help; we build equal partnerships and strive for long-term solutions.
Our team is characterized by an inspiring mixture of idealism and pragmatism. Values such as trust, dedication, and loyalty guide our activities. These values do not only lead to a strong identification with the organization, but also to positive team spirit. » Contact Page
