The Ubuntu Coffee Cooperative
5515 Doyle St #7, Emeryville, CA 94608
The Ubuntu Coffee Cooperative is a small coffee roasting company located in Emeryville California. They grew out of a desire to market the finest Organic, Fair Trade Coffee in a work environment that respects the rights and dignity of all who work to produce it.
The name Ubuntu is a southern African philosophy of generosity and equality. “Humanity cannot exist in a vacuum but must be reflected off another person. By caring for my brothers and sisters I become more human and while success is celebrated it should not be at the expense of another.” They feel that these values are symbolic of the type of commerce they participate in: Fair Trade, Organic, Cooperative. They wish to bring together small scale coffee growing cooperatives with community based coffee roasters to empower each other thru transparent business practices, shared resources, and longstanding relationships.
