The Dream

The Dream Coffee is an advocacy + experience.

Watch to find out everything we stand for and read more after the video. 

Our roots.

Our beginnings are found in Tboli communities located in the lush, mountainous municipalities of T’Boli and Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in the southern Philippines.

Our name.

The Dream Coffee honors the farmers from T’Boli and Lake Sebu, the ancestral domain of the Tboli tribe who have a heritage of weaving sacred fabric inspired by dreams.

Our dream.

Wake up to the dream in your cup, we like to say. This dream is two-fold: to positively impact coffee farmer-families and to produce coffee with dream-like taste.

We believe in purchase that makes an impact and taste that makes an impact.

Purchase that makes an impact.

We directly trade with coffee farmers from T’Boli and most recently, Lake Sebu, but we also move through more than just a trade.

Farmers also receive training in production and post-harvest processes to better their crop productivity and bean quality, in trade practices, and in managing their earnings through savings. They are also supported with equipment and financing to make their harvest more efficient.

Taste that makes an impact.

We produce only Single Origin, Specialty Philippine Arabica.

Through intentional and mindful processing, every single specialty arabica bean in our bags is: shade-grown in a single origin, organically produced, handpicked and harvested ripe, roasted in small batches, and traded directly and ethically with farmers.

Our manifesto.
We believe in— 
The Philippines. Its people, its farmers, its coffee.
Giving life through the works of our hands,
Speaking life with the stories we tell.
Changing the world with dream-like coffee.
Taking the counterculture approach in all things—
Leading by serving,
Building strength with compassion,
Empowering with truth, and
Creating freely, fearlessly, radically.
Doing all things with purpose.
And waking up to live our dreams—
Always enduring until the day
Everyone gets to live theirs.
