About the organization
Even if Philippines is a producer of coffee, it imports a big quantity of it. Kape Maria is trying to reverse that trend and sells fair trade coffee that is 100% Filipino. Julia Sevilla, the founder, wants Filipinos to get to know coffee culture and wants them to encourage coffee farmers of Philippines by buying local. They offer Arabica, Robusta and Liberica coffee beans.

What makes it a social enterprise?
Kape Maria's mission is to provide sustainable livelihood to coffee farmers and cooperatives by creatively inspiring coffee drinkers.
Kape Maria sources directly from farmers and cooperatives all over the country and all the beans sold are fair trade. By making local coffee more known inside Philippines and creating a bigger demand for it, they hope to alleviate poverty for Filipinos farmers. All the beans are roasted by hand.
