The Brewpoint Triple Bottom Line

Building a better world through coffee also means creating a social, environmental, and economic impact. At Brewpoint, we work hard to:

1. Create a social impact by providing coffee farmers $1/pound or more above Fair Trade standards.

2. Create an environmental impact by making at least one environmentally- conscious change within our business every quarter.

3. Create an economic impact by building a transparent business that creates a fair system to not only shareholders, but to the employees, community, and to our farmers and vendors.

The Brewpoint Eco-System

Our Diversity Goals
We aim to be a company that has 75% social minorities employed (including gender, race, economic status, age, etc.)

Our Environmental Goals

As a company, we are committed to owning our role as responsible stewards of this environment. To hold ourselves accountable to this commitment, we will implement one change every quarter to our products, supplies, or systems that are environmentally sustainable.

Here are some examples of some changes we’ve implemented in 2019
  • Switched from straw lids to straw-less sip lids

  • Switched to distributing sticker stoppers versus plastic stirrers/stoppers

  • Using Bio-tre packaging for all our coffee products

    Here are some things we’re excited to implement in 2020

  • Brewpoint Tumbler Program

  • Switching to double walled insulated cups instead of using sleeves

  • Using reusable containers for retail coffee

Our Partnerships/ Suppliers

Below are elements that we at Brewpoint Coffee consider when choosing partnerships with suppliers.

Local and Underrepresented / Minority- Owned
At Brewpoint, we value providing opportunities to underrepresented, local populations. Therefore, when choosing partnerships, our purchasing policy gives preference to local suppliers and those from populations that are often underrepresented such as women and minority-owned businesses.

Socially Conscious
We believe in creating an ecosystem that revolves around our values of engagement, kindness, diversity, thoughtfulness, respect, and growth. To foster such a culture, we advocate for partners that are empowering others through their business. An example is our partnership with Cafe Con Amor and their initiative, The Farmers Project, which supports local coffee farmers in Costa Rica by honoring fair coffee prices to provide an improved quality of living.


Environmentally Thoughtful
As a company, we are committed to owning our role as responsible stewards of the earth. Because of that, we encourage our partners to be environmentally thoughtful in their practices. In everything we do, from using more environmentally friendly production materials to use of fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly transportation methods, we support both our team and our partners to be kind to the environment that we share.

Our Preferred List Of Local Suppliers (For All Brewpoint Locations)

The specialty coffee industry in is peril if we don’t invest in long term sustainability.

We want to be a part of the solution.

Our Coffee Impact

Our Commitment to Above Fair Trade Standards
Our Coffee Buying Practices
Coffee C-market are currently priced at $1.20/pound. 
Fair Trade price is at $1.40/pound. 

At Brewpoint, we pay on average $3/pound to ensure that the farms we support are able to not only make ends meet, but have a sustainable future. We work with a variety of distributors with Cafe Imports being our top distributor and our relationship with Cafe Con Amor and Farmers Project being our top direct relationships. Our goal as a company is not only to pay on average more than $1 more than Fair Trade prices, but to also purchase full lots of coffee to give security to our farmers. 
Our Partnership with WCR
Brewpoint Coffee is proud to partner with World Coffee Research to protect the future of coffee and coffee farmers.
 For every pound of green coffee that Brewpoint purchases and roasts, 1% goes to support WCR’s ambitious research agenda, which is helping build a more sustainable specialty coffee supply chain.

WCR is the only organization in the world applying advanced agricultural science for coffee on a world-wide, collaborative basis. WCR is developing the next generation of high yielding, climate resilient coffee varieties, while increasing quality in the cup. In addition, WCR is conducting the first global research to drive best agricultural practices, minimize inputs and environmental impacts, and maximize farmer incomes. 

Brewpoint recognizes that innovation in coffee agriculture is necessary to confront the challenge of climate change and to provide lasting support to coffee producers around the world. 
Our Collaboration with Local Transition Programs 
District 205 & ELSA Program
Brewpoint is excited to partner with two great programs. Our student partners work with coaches to learn skills in our roastery, and help us with majority of our packaging needs.

1) District 205 Transition Program
"Providing transition services and supports in community settings to students ages 18-21 with intellectual disabilities allows students to expand their independence, self-advocacy, employment, and social and community integration during their final years of mandated public schooling."

2) Elmhurst Learning and Success Academy (ELSA)
"The Elmhurst Learning and Success Academy (ELSA) is a four-year, post-secondary certificate program for young adults, ages 18-28, with differing abilities."
