Warrior Coffee could not be successful without the support of a number of strategic partnerships.
Lycoming College is the official buyer of Warrior Coffee coffee beans from the Dominican Republic, and purchases those beans from the San Rafael Cooperative and the El Naranjito Association at a fair price, and exports the beans to the United States. This helps the College remain closely aligned with the social and environmental ideals of the Warrior Coffee Project. The adjustment resulted in a 650 percent increase from 2015 to 2018, increasing capital that goes back into the El Naranjito region, contributing to long-term, sustainable economic development in that community.
Once in the United States, Alabaster Coffee Roaster & Tea Co. roasts and packages Warrior Coffee just a few blocks from the Lycoming campus. The College sells beans to green coffee buyers across the country, including celebrity chef Jay Ducote, who works with Baton Rouge-based Cafeciteaux Coffee Roasters to roast and sell the beans under his “JayD’s” label. And the College’s many retail partners help sell Warrior Coffee to coffee connoisseurs across the country.
