Our mission at DRWakefield is to continually develop a sustainable, progressive and open approach to coffee.
For us, this means not only helping to create sustainable, quality coffee but building sustainable and long-lasting relationships and supply chains. Part of this means working with certification, but we also work with partners and communities at origin to further our investment with the people with which we work.
This work is grounded in local capacity building, economic and environmental sustainability. Each project is developed and designed around the societal and environmental needs of the local community and environment. They aim to support coffee producers financially in the long term, whilst contributing to the health and wellbeing of people and nature.
DRWakefield Projects are funded either through a price premium we pay per kg on select coffees or a profit percentage of sales at origin. We also use events, such as our annual Full Circle, to increase awareness and funding.
