We respect farming communities by helping them to prosper. For decades, we have been present in various coffee growing regions, helping local communities and ensuring that families and workers can sustain their activities while improving quality of life.
Empowering women, changing lives

Farming in Grandpa’s footsteps
Eduardo comes from a family of coffee growers and he wanted to become a farmer too – until he lost the coffee buzz and decided to try life in the city. Thankfully, the NESCAFÉ farm school helped him to reignite his coffee passion. Today, he’s farming sustainably and following in the footsteps of his parents and grandparents.

Farmer friends in Thailand
NESCAFÉ agronomists have been working with Thai coffee farmers for decades, enabling higher yields, lower costs and better results. But they’ve also become a part of the community, as friends of farmers and their families. Coffee tastes better when it’s made by good friends.
