From Farmers to Friends
Fuego Coffee Roasters is a coffee company based in Rochester, NY.
Our Projects: How a Micro-Roaster can make a Macro-Impact
Since 2013 Fuego has grown to make a positive difference in the coffee community both globally and locally. Fuego started as a couple's dream to bridge Rochester coffee lovers to the global coffee community. "From Farmers to Friends" Fuego is committed to creating positive and ethical change.
We work directly with our coffee farmers to ensure they are being paid for their value. Over the years we have built close relationships with several partner farms including Loma La Gloria in El Salvador and Vergel Estates in Colombia. Our goal is to establish long term, sustainable relationships with these farms.
In 2016, Fuego partnered with students from Roberts Wesleyan College to launch a sister cafe in Huehuetenango, Guatemala to provide entrepreneurial and employment opportunities to teenagers, and financial support to coffee farmers in the Huehue community.
Fuego strives to give back to our community, frequently fundraising for local non-profits, contributing to local charities, and offering our space as a hub for food and supply drives.
