We invest in farmers, roast coffee, & create experiences that bring people together.

Our Mission

The mission of Voltage Coffee Project is to leave this world better than we found it. To do our part, we invest in global farming communities, roast and tailor coffee for all, and create unforgettable experiences that bring people together.

We provide fuel for people who give a damn. With every purchase you make, life gets better for somebody else. Come join the party.

The Dilemma

Although coffee is a significant export for many countries worldwide, farmers face an ongoing battle to receive fair market prices and proper valuation for their product. The root of the problem lies in the disparity between Specialty and Commercial Coffee. Specialty companies purchase only a small portion (5-10%) of a farm's crop, while commercial buyers pay producers a fraction of what they deserve. This limited representation places financial strain on producers and creates a range of financial expectations among consumers.

Full Farm Representation

Every seed-to-cup coffee story involves thousands of hours of labor and tradition. However, not every plant yields perfect fruit. Despite a farmer's attention to detail, coffee cherries of varying grades are inevitable due to uncontrollable factors such as weather, season, and altitude.

At Voltage, we are committed to purchasing an entire lot from farmers and providing it as three unique lines of coffee: West Oak, Voltage, and Roadrunner. Each line represents different grades of the farm's offerings. Our goal is to empower our producers by not only purchasing their specialty grades, but also building sustainability into their business model by paying them more per pound for their other coffees.

The Next Step: Campuses

At Voltage, we are committed to making a positive impact on coffee producers worldwide. Our vision of a Voltage Campus is designed to equip small producers with the necessary resources to flourish. This not only benefits the farmers themselves, but also the communities in which they reside. As we've seen, improving farm productivity has a direct and positive effect on the local economy and community.

By investing in sustainable resources, education, and income for all, we believe we can create a better future for coffee producers around the world. Through the Voltage Campus initiative, we aim to empower small farmers and help them build sustainable livelihoods. We're starting with our first campus in Uganda, and we plan to expand to other regions in the future.

The Role You Can Play

We want you to feel a sense of ownership in this story. We understand the enormity of this project, but we are committed to tackling it with your help through integrity, humility, and kindness. As coffee consumers, we have the power and responsibility to participate in something greater than ourselves. When you drink Voltage Coffee or partner with our company, you are making a difference on a global scale!
