The Zabuni Difference

The open nature of our auction means parties can buy or sell with confidence because prices are negotiated exclusively between buyer and seller. Transparency is the first step toward accountability, and we enable both ends of the supply chain to have a clear view of the entire process so that we can bring real, verifiable, sustainable change to the supply and trade of coffee.

I’m a consumer.

We love coffee drinkers, but do you know where the coffee beans came from? Do you know whether they were ethically sourced? If so, how do you know?
