Direct Coffee is about creating a long lasting positive social impact in Africa by using a business approach. We import premium forest coffee directly from smallholder farmers in Ethiopia and sell it in Switzerland in compostable Nespresso-compatible capsules, as beans, and ground. For each package our customers buy, they support one of the coffee farmers’ kids through social projects we implement in the communities.
