Attention to the social, environmental and financial impacts of conducting business forms the foundation of Grounds for Change. Out of this concern grows premium quality, great service and passion for our trade. The result is a truly exceptional cup of coffee. We are focused on operating as a green business and have received a Washington award for Outstanding Achievement in Sustainability.

We are a member of 1% for the Planet and donate well over 1% of our total sales to various environmental organizations. For more information, please visit our website:

Product Description Every single bean we roast is Fair Trade Certified, Organic Certified, CarbonFree® Certified and Shade Grown, which means the possibility of a real livelihood for coffee growers, a breath of fresh air for the planet, zero net carbon emissions from crop to cup and healthy forests for migratory songbirds.

Environmental Commitment

Our commitment to carbon offsetting goes far beyond our own coffee roasting operations. Every step in the coffee chain has been scrutinized, from a coffee plant in Peru all the way to a bag of roasted coffee in our customer’s hands. The details of harvest, transportation, roasting, packaging and shipping to customers have all been included in our carbon footprint analysis.

“It’s simply the right thing to do”, says Kelsey Marshall, Co-Founder. “We want to provide our customers with the highest quality coffee available. To us, that means Organic Certified, Fair Trade Certified and now CarbonFree® Certified – caring for ecosystems, workers and the climate”.
