Social Responsibility

Doing the Right Thing

From the farmers we choose to work with, to the things we do to reduce waste, Cameron’s Coffee is a company committed to doing the right thing. It may sound cliché, but we’re committed to it! Because we’ve found that doing the right thing—for the environment, for the farmers, and for our customers—all directly contribute to our main mission:


Social Responsibility

Let’s start at the source: the coffee farmers. When we travel the world for the best beans, we make a point to get to know the farmers, the crews of workers, and their families. This is their livelihood as well as ours.

We are also invested in helping our farmers develop healthier and more sustainable farms, collaborating with the next generation of coffee farmers. We’ve partnered with Coffee Kids, a program of Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung, a leading non-profit organization focused on empowering smallholder farmers, to create a brighter future for young coffee farmers. These are the connections and standards we value, and pass along to you.

Caring About the Environment

We aim to be good stewards of our environment. We champion the big things and the small things being done to protect the planet. In the decisions and choices we make, we try to do the right thing as it relates to minimizing our footprint and making the world a little brighter.

From reduced water consumption while roasting to using recycled paperboard in our EcoPods packaging to sending coffee by-product to a local composting facility, we’re proud of our green efforts in our facility, packaging and waste stream.

No Plastic Cup. Always Smooth Coffee.

Convenience is great, but tons of plastic waste is not. We believe in better taste and less waste, so we’ve found a better single serve option. Not only does your coffee taste better because we use 100% specialty grade coffee brewed through a filter, not a plastic cup, but the pods are 100% Compostable*.

*Compostable in industrial facilities. Check locally, as these do not exist in many communities. No current certification for backyard composting.

Our EcoPods are made with plant-based materials like corn and beets, and are certified for industrial compost facilities.

That means that the single serves you brew and compost can be broken down into organic matter (with proper application of moisture, heat and oxygen!) At Cameron’s, we support the growth of industrial and municipal composting facilities, because they don’t exist everywhere. For more information on composting, read our blog!

To date, there is no certification for at home composting. However, we’re confident our EcoPods will break down into organic matter (if done properly) because we’ve done our own testing. We’re proud to share that our EcoPods have composted in our own backyard! For more information on how to compost at home visit these knowledgeable websites: herehere, and here!

Cameron’s offers a full line of organic blends, many of which are shade-grown, and we always use specialty-grade Arabica beans.

Organic farming supports the ideals of land stewardship, from protecting biodiversity and ecological balance, to using natural pest management and fertilization. Many of our specialty coffee blends are available in premium and organic varieties.
