Sustainable From Bean to Brew

As we approach the anniversary of launching Together Coffee, we wanted to take a little time out to talk about the lifespan of your coffee beans. While most of us only see the end result of products we purchase, it’s important when moving to a more sustainable lifestyle that we acknowledge the whole life cycle of what we consume.  It’s easy to become disconnected from the process of how our food makes it from farm to our homes. But when we don’t pay attention, it becomes easier and easier for companies to reduce their commitment to manufacturing practices that [...]

Building a Business with Coffee: How Our Fellows Are Earning a Sustainable Income with Together Coffee

We launched Together Coffee in June and since then it has been making a profound impact on our Fellows community, their families, and their businesses.  As a company, we’d been dreaming up a coffee brand for a while now and had plans to see it come to fruition with the launch of our fall collection, but once Covid-19 hit and businesses around the world started shutting down, it became clear that we needed to take action on this idea as soon as possible in order to ensure we could take care of team both globally and here in the [...]

Together Coffee: Sseko’s Fairly-traded, Small-batch Coffee with Impact

We’re so proud to have officially launched Together Coffee!  Sseko Designs was founded under a mango tree in Uganda.

Our big ideas were fueled by Ugandan coffee, which was the most delicious we’d ever tasted. Little did we know that we’d return to that very drink to move Sseko into the next phase of our company.  Years later, Liz ventured to Ethiopia where she learned the phrase “buna tetu” which refers to “being together” but quite literally [...]
