Café 509's mission is to offer the best-roasted coffee that Haiti can provide while creating employment opportunities in Haiti. We work closely with the Cooperative Cacgava in Dondon, Cap-Haitien. By collaborating with the Cooperative, we can directly source our coffee beans from local farmers and maintain a transparent and traceable process from seed to cup. Profit from every sale aims to rebuild coffee-growing lands in Haiti, protect the land through responsible use, create jobs, manage schools, pay a fair & and equitable standard wage, and preserve the biodiversity of the Haitian forests.
