We partner with numerous organizations to promote high-quality, sustainable coffee that safeguards the environment, promotes workers’ rights and welfare, and improves lives in coffee-growing communities as well as communities that are closer to home.
Here is a sample of organizations that we support:
- Rainforest Alliance
In 1999, Boyd Coffee Company became the first American roaster to import Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee. Since then, we have sourced increasing amounts of our coffee from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms to ensure that the coffee is grown to sustainable standards that protect the environment and the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities.
- Specialty Coffee Association of America
We are a founding member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), the world’s largest coffee trade association dedicated to creating a vibrant specialty coffee community. In 2008, we introduced the commercial Coffee Profiler®, the only brewing system certified by the SCAA to brew each cup to the Golden Cup Award standard.
- National Coffee Association
We are a board member of the National Coffee Association of U.S.A. Inc. (NCUSA), the first trade association for the U.S. coffee industry.

The Coffee Quality Institute helps coffee growers produce high-quality, sustainable coffee and receive a better price. We serve as a trustee.
- Grounds for Health
We support Grounds for Health, an international, nonprofit agency that provides health care services to coffee-growing communities in Mexico and Central America. Their primary focus is early detection of cervical cancer, a leading cause of death in these areas.
We are a proud sponsor of ProStart, the career-building program for high school students who are interested in culinary arts and foodservice management.
