The Coffee America Corporation was established in 1987 in New York.

The current team of traders has over 150 years combined experience.  The company is primarily involved in the trading of arabica coffee.Coffee America sources green coffee from South America and Central America and sells to roasters globally.  The company offers both conventional and certified (Rainforest Alliance, UTZ, organic). Coffee America is a member of the Green Coffee Association (GCA), The National Coffee Association (NCA) and the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE).


Coffee America’s specialty division is able to provide high quality and unique coffee to a diverse customer base.  The company offers a range of estate, regional and certified coffee.  The division was founded in 1999 to meet the growing demand from cafes to regional and international roasters for distinctive coffees. 




We are committed to sustainable agriculture and to the coffee and cocoa farmers that are the cornerstone of our business.  Today our involvement is through certification (Rainforest Alliance, UTZ, organic).  Certification provides opportunities for farmers to improve their agricultural practices, making it possible to increase productivity and improve quality.


In addition, farmers are trained in health and safety, environmental and wildlife protection as well as basic business skills.  Farmers, their families and their communities also benefit from improved social infrastructure such as schools, wells and medical clinics, which can be paid for with the certification premiums paid by the coffee and cocoa supply chain partners.


Our sustainability efforts will continue to evolve as we get increasingly involved at origin with both our suppliers and our customers.  We are able to work directly with our customers to develop sustainability programs that meet specific customer objectives.
