I bet you didn’t know that even the smallest drop of coffee could have a lasting impact.
That’s right, even the smallest choice, like which coffee brand you consume, can make a big difference. The coffee you buy can impact the welfare of people and the planet. I wish I would have known this years ago! When I started my coffee journey, I would just purchase whatever was cheapest and who knows what their standards were.
But what does this mean? Let’s dive into this.
Since 2021, all Peet’s Coffee is 100% Responsibly Sourced per standards set by Enveritas, an independent, third-party, global non-profit that tracks social, economic and agricultural impact across the multiple crops and industries. Enveritas performs more than 20,000 sustainability audits per year on the more than 59,000, mostly small-scale farms in 24 regions around the world that supply coffee beans for Peet’s Coffee. Verified responsible sourcing goes beyond certifications, setting standards for coffee farms, and verifying and measuring the conditions, practices and progress of positive impact projects taking place.
Responsible sourcing is nothing new at Peet’s Coffee. Working with Enveritas their ability to apply a consistent approach to every location has improved conditions – and the lives of farmers – where they source their coffees. As of April 2022, Peet’s has 39 active impact projects, ranging from farmer productivity initiatives to clean water access.
