      About the company

      Coffee farmers receive less than the 10% of the final value of a roasted coffee bag, even though they do most of the work. While other initiatives like certifications aim to improve this situation, Compadre uses a business model that offers a dramatic impact to a farmer's income. The solution involves installing a solar coffee production station in the jungle, where they farmers can go throughout the year to process and roast their coffee, earning extra income for their work.
