“Zero Carbon Coffee took a Climate Neutral Pledge for net-zero emissions, setting itself apart as the first coffee company to remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere with every sale. Each bag of 12-ounce coffee helps to offset 100 lbs of Carbon, as Zero Carbon Coffee purchases carbon offsets from verified partners who plant trees, support socially responsible farming practices and more.
Reuben Villagomez, one of the founders of Zero Carbon Coffee notes, “”For cities to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, individuals must take action to reduce their carbon footprint. Based on my expertise in private label coffee roasting for cafe clients, I knew I wanted to launch my own, focused on creating positive change through expressive, perfectly roasted coffees.””
Within its first year of operation, Zero Carbon Coffee intends to become a 100% direct-trade only roaster.”

Our team of founders has been working on reducing our carbon footprints for most of our adult lives. Walk or drive? Reusable bottle or plastic to-go? Meatless Monday or the steak on sale?
It’s not easy when there’s a scarcity of carbon-free products on the market. Because we didn’t believe in compromising taste OR our commitment to the environment, we created Zero Carbon Coffee in 2019.
If you look at Life Cycle Assessments for the coffee value chain, you’ll find that most emissions come from dairy milk and brewing. This is at the point of consumption— so not at the farm, and not from transportation to New York from South America, for example. Zero Carbon Coffee addresses this:
First, we make our own supply chain carbon neutral. From farm to port, from port to port, from port to roastery, from roastery to your door. We pay for carbon offsets, which go toward forest restoration projects to help keep carbon sequestered.
Second, we pass on additional carbon savings to you. We’ve covered our supply chain, and we’re not forgetting about the significance of your brewing. Every Zero Carbon Coffee bag includes 100 lbs. of carbon offsets — enough to protect 2 trees, or enough to offset 90-miles driven.
