Section 1 FAQs LWR Farmers Market Coffee
LWR has worked with coffee farmers and their cooperatives for years. Through this work, LWR has helped coffee farmers get quality coffee seeds, fertilizer and other materials to grow good quality coffee. LWR also helps cooperatives to provide more support and training to their farmers and access buyers willing to pay better prices. Through this work, many farmers around the world have been able to build stronger livelihoods with their coffee. Even still, market challenges remain.
LWR Farmers Market Coffee creates even more economic opportunities for farmers living in poverty around the world. Coffee farmers and their families not only benefit from the expertise and support of LWR, but also receive fair, stable, and predicatble up-front prices, along with a share of the profits from the sale of their coffee.
LWR is producing LWR Farmers Market Coffee in partnership with Farmers market Brands. FMB partners with farmers to bring high-quality coffee beans from their farms and roast those beans into delicious coffee. Farmers are given a stable, predictable, and higher price upfront for their beans. What happens afterwards is what truly makes this model exciting. Farming communities receive additional profits after the coffee is sold. With LWR Farmers Market Coffee, farmers aren’t just suppliers of coffee beans, they are partners in the coffee business.
Farmers Market Brands shares LWR’s passion for giving coffee farmers new opportunities and a helping hand to their families and communities. LWR connects FMB to coffee farmers around the world.

Our care for farmers is matched by our care for the quality of their coffee. Through our long-term relationships with farmers and regular visits to their farms, we maintain an intimate knowledge of the coffee harvest and the quality of the beans. We have a rigorous system for quality control from bean to cup, which involves testing quality multiple times throughout the entire process.
Our coffee is decaffeinated using a water-based process that keeps all those unnecessary chemicals out of your coffee. This process introduces all of the compounds that are found in coffee into a water solution, except for caffeine. The raw coffee then is placed in the water and through the process of osmosis, the caffeine leaves the coffee bean gradually and enters into the water solution. In the end, we have decaffeinated coffee that was not damaged or contaminated with chemicals during the decaffeination process.

The majority of our coffees are not certified. We are an economically sustainable platform that offers coffee farmers access to new markets where they can to sell to customers like you. We have transformed the coffee supply chain through a model that shares more of the revenue generated by your purchase with the farmer. Our model minimizes the layers in the supply chain and maximizes the income to the farmer. Our farmer-direct coffee platform offers you a reasonable price for great quality coffee and sends a larger percentage of the proceeds back to the farmers. You are now closer to the farmer and the farmer is closer to you, the consumer. The result? You are helping farmers earn more to support their farm, family and community.
