A joint venture between Condesa and Supremo, the Akawa project was created to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable and equitable way. Producers, striving for fairer remunerations and better living conditions, demanded a path towards prosperity. As such the project’s working directives are based around UTZ certification standards, focusing on good agricultural practices, environmental responsibility and social equity as the central tenets of success for project members.
‘Cari Coffee’ works with producers in Veracruz, Oaxaca and Chiapas, to improve cup quality, yields and fetch higher prices for their coffees. Cari is supported by a Sustainable Management Services (SMS) team, who provide technical assistance regarding agronomy, picking and financial management. Cari pays quality premiums direct to the producers, and Condesa remits 50% of our profits for these coffees back to the producer once we have sold their lot.
