About Us

Coffee farmers earn six cents for every $6 latte you drink. We're trying to change that.

MotMot is a direct-trade coffee brand that partners with coffee co-operatives that foster economic, product quality, and community development. We pay premiums higher than Fair Trade and ensure a close personal connection with farmers and co-op management. Our vertically integrated supply chain assures no middlemen take a percentage of the money that farmers earn.
