Mokha 1450 has engaged in the direct trade model since its founding to source coffee directly from farmers, and the company is founded on a strong Corporate Social Responsibility platform that aims to support women in coffee. Women, who generally do most of the labor, represent and create 90% of the coffee value chain but constitute only approximately 5% ownership and management throughout the coffee industry. To improve the representation of women in coffee, Mokha 1450 has worked continuously with women owned and operated coffee farms and cooperatives from origins such as Jamaica, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Yemen, as well as others, and has engaged in a number of community-based projects to enrich the lives of these farmers.
