What Makes Us, Us

​ ​ ​


Social Responsibility

At Don Carvajal Café, we prioritize giving back to our communities, locally and internationally in the communities where we source our coffee. With our Home Base in the South Bronx, we are working with those in the community to help create jobs and new opportunities in underserved neighborhoods.

We also work with small farmers in The Dominican Republic, Haiti, Costa Rica, Colombia and Brazil to source our coffee from those who will benefit the most and support the communities in those countries that need sustainable agriculture opportunities.

Rainforest Alliance Certified

Representatives from the certification body have made on-site visits to the farms that we source from in order to evaluate the farms compliance with the Sustainable Agricultural Standard.

USDA Organic

USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives.

Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible. Our coffee is organic and we have the certification to prove it.


All of our coffee orders are bagged in biodegradable and compostable packaging.

*60% compostable/60% renewable, not including the valve.

Bagging technology is almost there! When developed and available, we’ll upgrade our bags to 100% compostable and renewable.
