The tale of Ethical Bean is rooted firmly in place and goal. In 1999, founders Lloyd Bernhardt and Kim Schachte invested most of a 12 months in Guatemala awaiting the adoption of their daughter. There, they viewed and learned about the country and the coffee and the individuals operating to make a living developing one thing we all take pleasure in. They believed there was a better, more equitable way to honour these farmers, and in 2003, Ethical Bean was born in Vancouver, Canada.
