The unfortunate truth is these companies usually only deal with the co-op owner, never the farmer, and these co-op owners keep the majority of the money; the coffee companies will be happy with this deal as long as they get these high quality micro-lots and a few fancy photos of them “working with the people on the ground”, while in reality the farmer doing all the work is left to the side receiving barely anything at all.

PROCEEDS CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE LAULARA BIRTHING CENTRE
Before the development of the Laulara Birthing Centre, Women in labour were forced to walk or ride on the back of a bus or motorbike 15km to the hospital in Aileu to give birth. Many women decide on home births instead. Therefore, not receiving timely advice and care before, during or after birth, compounding any problems experienced during these critical times for mothers and babies, especially when difficulties arise during birth. Your purchase from the Laulara Birthing Centre Coffee products will directly support the local community and protect the health of mother and babies, providing young children with a better start in life.
