Santropol is a 100% certified organic and fair trade coffee roaster based in Montreal, Quebec. We work with certified organic and fair trade coffee producers in eight different countries. Our objective is to offer the finest possible spectrum of roasted coffees while working toward a fairer distribution of revenue, empowerment, and mutual respect among all participants in the chain, from farmer to consumer. We believe that social and economic justice and environmental stewardship are essential to global political and economic viability; that a sustainable global and local economy must, like a sustainable family, be built on non-violence, truth, equity, and respect for our planetary environment.

That’s all well and good, but how do we get there from here?  Entre el dicho y el culo hay gran trecho. Many a slip between the cup and the lip.
