Proyecto Diaz Coffee

People

Fernando Diaz, Hannah-Love Diaz, and family.

About

Fernando Diaz and his family have a lineage rooted in coffee. Though Proyecto Diaz Coffee started roasting beans in 2014, the Diaz family’s history stretches back to the early 1900s, when Fernando’s great-grandfather began growing coffee in Oaxaca, Mexico. That legacy persists today; Fernando’s grandfather Juan continues to grow coffee on his farm, El Carmen; his father roasts the coffee; his wife, Hannah-Love, does production and design; and Fernando does outreach and coffee selection.

Sourcing

The company lives out its slogan—”caffeinate with purpose”—through direct trade sourcing from small producers, investing 10% of its profits back into El Carmen, and buying at above fair-trade prices

Fun Fact

Proyecto means “project” in Spanish and Diaz is the family’s last name. Their company’s first project was rebuilding the family coffee farm, El Carmen.
