About Us

Caravela Coffee welcomes you to Mercado, an online green coffee market where green coffee buyers can meet producers and buy their specialty green coffee beans, with just a few clicks.

In Latin America, a mercado is where people meet to buy and sell their goods and produce. Once or twice a week, coffee producers travel from their farms up in the mountains to their town's central market. Here they buy food for their homes and get together with old friends. They also take advantage of these days, to sell their weekly coffee lots.

Mercado is where we offer small lots of fully-traceable and high-end green beans to coffee roasters. All our coffees are meticulously vetted by our quality team at origin at least 5 times before shipment, where they analyze physical defects, moisture content, water activity, and cup quality. We ensure that all our coffee is of the highest quality.

We offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are not happy with your purchase, we will stand by the quality of the coffee. We will do what we need to do to make the situation right, or refund your money.


About Caravela

Caravela is a Latin American green coffee exporter and importer founded in 2000. We responsibly source coffee from almost 4,000 coffee producers across eight countries in Latin America, the majority of which are smallholder farmers. Almost 90% of the Caravela team is based at origin, most of them are agronomists or cuppers who provide training, technical support and quality feedback to producers in Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru. Alongside the work of our import offices in Europe, North America, and Australia, Caravela is dedicated to bridging the gap between specialty coffee roasters and smallholder coffee farmers, focused on quality, transparency and long-term sustainable relationships.

Caravela has been a B-Corp certified company since 2014 and has been named by B-Labs as a Best-for-the-World company for the last four years.
