WithOneBean is a not for profit coffee social enterprise producing ethical, social, and environmental coffee to consumers who want their coffee to create real social impact whilst also tasting delicious.
WithOneBean coffee is sourced directly from over 650 subsistence coffee farmers in Timor-Leste, who produce the coffee cherry using 100% organic farming methods on small-holder farms. WithOneBean purchases green beans directly from the farmers and then roast and pack locally in our micro roastery in Melbourne.
Through our direct relationships, WithOneBean makes a significant contribution to improving the health, well-being and livelihoods of coffee growing communities in Timor-Leste, at the same time providing a quality speciality coffee to our customers in Australia and beyond.
We work to ensure that our products and processes contribute to the sustainability of our planet by supporting WithOneSeed, a community forestry program in the mountains of Timor-Leste. We plant a tree for every kilo of coffee that we roast and this year we will plant 20,000 trees in partnership with WithOneSeed. We are proud to produce carbon neutral coffee.
Generating social and environmental impact is at the heart of our work. Our focus is on putting an earned dollar in a person’s pocket – empowering them to make decisions for themselves and not be reliant on charity and aid. We spend time working with subsistence farmers, building their capacity to improve crop yields and harvesting practices. Importantly, we pay above the local market price for the green coffee beans, ensuring farmers are getting a fair price.
At WithOneBean, we work to produce quality speciality coffee, that is ethically sourced, with good social outcomes, a positive environmental impact and a great taste for you.
