Coffee Bros. New York

Since then, Coffee Bros., a Climate Neutral Certified company, prioritizes its mission-driven mindset— keeping its carbon footprint small, building stronger ties with local communities, and strengthening the economies and the ecosystems of the countries that our coffees originate. The brothers proudly support One Tree Planted, Climate Neutral, World Coffee Research, and Grounds for Health.

NFT FAQ

The Coffee Bros. NFT program is the first of its kind in the coffee industry. The goal is to create a lifelong experience with award-winning coffees, all while giving the deserved recognition back to the producer and supporting organizations that look to improve the livelihoods of those producers.

The Coffee Bros. NFT project is 1-part digital artwork (as an NFT), 1-part physical good (10oz bag of coffee), and 1-part donation (support going to Alliance for Coffee Excellence and World Coffee Research).

The Coffee Bros. NFT program will send all first-time buyers of the digital artwork a physical bag of coffee that correlates back to the chosen auction event.

Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and auction for high-quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergoes is unmatched anywhere in the specialty coffee industry. Each year, thousands of coffees are submitted for consideration, with winning coffees sold in global online auctions at premium prices. The vast majority of auction proceeds go to the farmers.

The Cup of Excellence competition has pioneered integrity and transparency in the coffee industry, ensuring the value of winning coffees. Each sample entering the competition process is assigned a number known only to the auditor for each competition, and each jury member cups the coffee blind. In addition, each lot is documented throughout the entire process so that winning coffees are traceable to the farm and exact micro-lot.

Since 1999, the Cup of Excellence (COE) program has set the standard for the increased premiums that farmers have received for their exemplary coffees. It continues to build a much more transparent infrastructure and gives farmers the tools needed to improve the economic model of their farms.  COE raises funds for coffee farmers in coffee-growing countries, incentivizing and motivating farmers who know there can be a recognition and financial reward for their hard work and effort.

Each coffee across the program will be purchased through a competitive auction like the Cup of Excellence. The Cup of Excellence awards upward of 30 producers for having the best coffee in their region for that year’s harvest.

Each month, The Coffee Bros. NFT project will source award-winning coffee and offer it to all current holders.

All coffee will have “won” its auction and will have an 89+pt cupping score.

NFT’s are non-fungible tokens that are a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency unlike fiat currencies because they are created, distributed, traded, and stored using a decentralized ledger system, known as a Blockchain. Bitcoins can be combined with non-custodial digital wallets like MetaMask to make purchases, like NFTs.

What is amazing about NFTs is that all transactions are recorded and stored on the Blockchain. Further, all digital assets are viewable through your non-custodial wallet like MetaMask or any NFT marketplace like Rarible (where we will be selling our NFT).

Rarible is a software allowing digital artists and creators to issue and sell custom crypto assets that represent ownership in their digital work.
