Social Enterprise @ Goizueta (SE@G) continues its support of coffee farmers in Central America through its “Famers to 40” program. Farmers to 40 encourages sustainable economic development within the coffee-growing communities of Nicaragua with a direct trade model that adequately compensates farmers for the time, skill and effort required to produce high-quality coffee. Farmers to 40 sells to consumers that care about coffee and returns a fixed percentage of the retail sale price to the farmers who grow the beans. Visit for more information about this project, and about the specialty coffee market more generally. For more on the great work that SE@G is doing closer to home, watch this video, which documents the microbusiness accelerator program in Clarkston, Ga.
