Specialty Coffee with a Purpose

The goal of URME is to partner growers and millers in Meru, Kenya with consumers around the world. Before URME, supply chain limitations discouraged locals from cultivating their coffee. We've changed that by eliminating valueless transactions. The other key to URME is ensuring the farmers and millers are compensated with a living wage. We like to think it's the fairest of trade.
