Even though coffee isn’t grown locally, you’re still going to buy it from somewhere, right? It’s not difficult to obtain fair trade coffee in Brooklyn, but Crop to Cup goes a little further. At Crop to Cup, sustainability means empowering coffee farmers to take control of their business and work their way out of poverty. It also means empowering conscientious consumers to exercise their preference for ethical products.
The result is what they call “relationship coffee”. Relationship coffee provides a low-cost, feel good alternative to traditional certified coffees. It means you could actually meet the farmers who grow the beans you brew. All Crop to Cup coffee comes from family farmers who tend to their own land that has been passed down throughout generations. Family farmed coffee is naturally cross-planted with other nutrient-giving plants, creating a shade-grown, and bird friendly, sustainable coffee ecosystem.
Coffee is delivered once per month for a total of 6 deliveries in a season.

Manual Coffee Grinder
Message from Crop to Cup:
As an added bonus this year we are offering discounted grinders to go along with the first delivery of the season. This is a very nice hand-powered grinder with a walnut base, and fits directly onto any wide-mouth canning jar (it also comes with a 16oz jar). The cost is $60 a pop. That is about $10 less than what you would pay from the manufacturer’s website. We like to offer this to folks who buy ground coffee normally, since upgrading to freshly ground coffee right before they brew results in a huge increase in quality.
Freshly ground coffee is THE #1 step one can take drink better tasting coffee.
