People realize potential.
Specialty quality coffee is people based. It is hand-planted, hand-picked, hand-processed and overseen by specialists who are devoted to producing the best coffee possible. Place may determine a coffee’s potential, but it is the people who make it great.
As a family company that puts the welfare of its workers above all else, APK knows the importance of people, and the surrounding community, in coffee. Our community focus can be seen on all of our farms, where we work closely with the local co-operatives that govern agriculture in the region. By putting locals in leadership roles, our farms quickly began to outperform prior years.
Our foundation supports the health and education of our neighboring communities. To date, we have provided clinics for easy access to medical check ups and enough corn for 38 surrounding schools.
