Thread Coffee is a collectively-owned and operated small-batch coffee roaster committed to a transparent model of trade that promotes dignity, sustainability, and solidarity. Through hand-crafted, quality coffee we sew together organizational models based on participatory democracy and self- management.
Thread Coffee works to create relationships directly with farmers, ensuring that producers receive a just price for their beans, and that their coffee is grown in a way that’s good for both the environment and the culture. Thread is a part of the Red Emma’s family of projects, and is roasting onsite at the new Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse at 30 W. North Avenue.
Just east of the Andes, in the central Amazon region of Peru, lies Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Pangoa. It was founded in 1977 by 50 members, it is now made up of approximately 700 farmers. Read on to find out more about this cooperative and check out photos from last years' visit. We hope you enjoy this coffee which is full-bodied with notes of toasted nuts and baker's chocolate.
As you may have heard, Thread Coffee received a Best of Baltimore award of Best Local Roast for our Fondo Paez coffee. So in honor of the Fondo Paez farmers, and in celebration of this delicious brew, we'll be featuring this coffee this month. So we hope you enjoy this full-bodied, chocolatey coffee!
