Project Overview

Heroica’s Success Story

Heroica is passionate about coffee. Their mission is to produce quality coffee in partnership with our local farmers and landowners, through respecting the natural landscapes. Their first farm was at Kalinga, growing Arabica coffee. In their first year, their first harvest was sold to Blue Bottle Coffee, a specialty coffee roaster and retailer in the USA focusing on single-origin beans.

Impact

We are committed to improving the ecological health of our plantation land and supporting our communities to achieve major and sustained improvements for their lives and future well-being.

Our Next Venture

Liberica Coffee

After the success of Kalinga and seeing the increasing challenges that coffee farmers face, Heroica aims to expand their footprint to safeguard the future of coffee farmers. They are expanding their operations with a new venture at Subic Bay that would become one of the largest coffee plantations in the Philippines.

The new plantation will focus on climate positive coffee, which will be more heat, drought and pest resistant. By embracing an agroforestry approach, Heroica Coffee aims to capture more carbon through soil, transforming it into a vital ingredient for crop growth.

Similar to Kalinga, Heroica plans to work with the local tribal community, supporting their goals to preserve their way of life and protect the rich natural habitat. In doing so, they safeguard the futures of coffee farmers while regenerating the land.

Our Joint Involvement

STTOKE gave us the World’s First Shatterproof Ceramic Cup as a sustainable way for coffee lovers to enjoy their daily brew. To support this new project, STTOKE will be contributing 1% of sales.

Arkadiah will measure the carbon sequestration potential and nature-positive outcomes for this new project. Heroica will use NatureOS, Arkadiah’s natural capital accounting system to quantify the ecological uplift, fast tracking their compliance with sustainable sourcing standards and generate carbon revenue.

The Issue

Coffee Farmer’s Uncertain Future

Smallholder coffee farmers are facing escalating pressures from climate crisis and supply chain inequity.

Environmental Toll

Deforestation and land degradation fueled by conventional farming practices

Mounting Risks

Yield decline for Arabica bean due to global adverse weather events

Income Inequity

Smallholders farmers produce 60%-80%* of the world’s coffee yet earn about 5% of total revenue**

Liberica Coffee

Climate and pest resilient species sought after for its bold, smokey flavours

Agroforestry and Regenerative Farming

Intercrop with other cash crop and reforestation, with reduced chemicals usage

Farm-to-cup integrated economic model

Extended role in value chain beyond farming into processing, roasting and beyond
