The climate and soil in Ethiopia lend to some of the greatest tasting coffee on the planet; robust, complex and full of flavor. It's no surprise that they are the largest coffee producing region in Africa. With that, comes a much higher risk of forced child labor, especially with Ethiopia having one of the highest rates of this injustice in the world. Over 50% of school-aged children in rural Ethiopian areas are working without pay, therefore largely missing opportunities for necessary education. 

Why is this such a prominent problem? Well, the answer is multi-faceted. Due to a complex web of social & economic issues, families resort to relying on children as free labor in order to have profitable farms. But in stark contrast, in Rainforest Alliance Certified Farms, child labor is simply not permitted. The RFA works with farmers to develop sustainable and ethical practices and pay workers fairly, not relying on forced child labor to harvest, sort and wash coffee beans.

At Bones Coffee Company, we are committed to working with farms, processers, communities, and actors across supply chains to correct human rights issues over time so that we can protect the children and workers of future generations.
