Klatch Coffee is committed to working with coffee farmers who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers/artisans for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality coffee.
Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.
Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...
Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.
Klatch Coffee believes that great coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.
Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
