International Coffee Imports is a family-owned and operated business based in San Francisco, CA. We purchase exclusively from a similar indigenous, family-owned and operated business in Kenya: Josra Coffee Company. A purchase supports family-owned and operated businesses keeping business local – not from a multinational corporation that ships money out of the local economies. The combination of International Coffee Imports and Josra Coffee Company provides a direct link to the finest Kenya coffee in the world eliminating unnecessary overhead and passing the savings on to YOU the customer. This direct connection is one you can trust to deliver exactly what is expected and agreed upon – no surprises.
International Coffee Imports supports producers. To this end, we purchase directly with farmers; from the Kenyan auction, and secure coffees through proprietary channels. This not only creates a sustainable and profitable direct relationship with the producers; it also creates a more direct connection to the roasters here in the states. The benefits of the Kenyan auction system is that it follows government mandates that insures farmers are compensated fairly in a timely manner. This system richly rewards producers of top quality while also providing feedback that everyone may utilize for quality improvement. Given the open and transparent nature of the auction system farmers can calculate exactly what they have earned and can easily reconcile with the buyer. High quality produces are consistently rewarded with strong differentials over the C market.
International Coffee Imports is dedicated to bringing you the best value the market has to offer.
International Coffee Imports gives back by supporting a number of charitable organizations including: Feed The Children, Doctors Without Borders, Remote Area Medical, San Francisco Food Bank and others.
International Coffee Imports buys directly from Josra Coffee Company. Josra Coffee Company is one of the oldest, indigenous owned, coffee companies in Kenya. This supports the local Kenyan economy. The larger coffee exporters in Kenya are multinational corporations with parent companies outside the country, therefore, the local economies do not benefit from the trade. International Coffee Imports works to improve local economies.
