Teikei is a non-profit organisation that brings ambitious producers and conscious consumers into a relationship of solidarity at eye level. The focus is on developing a kind of global economy that is sustainable from an economic, social and ecological point of view. To this end, Teikei takes up the idea of community supported agriculture and develops it to a global reach.
The coffee is grown biodynamically on three agroforestry fincas in Mexico. After the harvest, a sailing ship transports the coffee emission-free to Germany, where it is roasted and packaged. It is then distributed to the consumer community that has pre-financed the value chain. Each member receives his or her coffee according to the proportion of the harvest he or she has previously purchased. The coffee is of very high quality and, according to the the Coffee Institute, is one of the "excellent coffees".

- inhumane salaries in coffee production
