“The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We can not say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.”  


Pope John Paul II


For Capricornio Coffees, sustainability is essential. On our way to achieving and promoting sustainability, we only work with coffees that are grown in equal compliance with ecological, social, and economic standards, thus providing the coffee farmers and their families with a permanent livelihood. It is the only way to guarantee the availability of specialty coffees to our clients over the long term.

Fertile soils, clean water, and appropriate climatic conditions are all critical and knowledge of eco-friendly growing methods is important for the future of the planet. We are therefore founders of the “Four Seasons Project”, which primarily addresses sustainable practices in coffee as well as harvest and post-harvesting topics to help our members produce better lots over the years.

Capricornio Coffees strongly believes that, for 25 years, sustainable development has been held up as the solution to the world's problems. But instead, we have had ever more pollution, biodiversity loss, and climate change. The concept of sustainability has been abused like a few other terms in history. It is time to think not just about sustaining the world's badly damaged ecosystems and human communities, but about regenerating them instead. We need to start thinking of regenerative rather than just sustainable development.
