Sustainable Harvest closes US$20 million financing agreement

Sustainable Harvest, a specialty coffee importer based in Seattle, has closed a new US$20 million sustainability-linked financing agreement with Brown Brothers Harriman & Co on 18 April 2024. It is Sustainable Harvest’s first standalone financing agreement since it was acquired by Sucafina in February 2023.

“Brown Brothers Harriman was instrumental in Sustainable Harvest’s most successful years. We are happy to reinstate the historic partnership. Relationships matter in coffee trading and in banking alike,” said Jordan Hooper, member of the Sustainable Harvest board of directors and head of green coffee trading at Sucafina. “Sustainable Harvest will use the capital to build upon its Relationship Coffee model. We will continue to push the boundaries of traceability and financial transparency with BBH’s dedicated support.”

“As a firm with a long history in the coffee industry, we are excited to partner with Sustainable Harvest, a true pioneer in the growth of sustainable, traceable, relationship coffee,” said Lewis Hart, head of BBH Corporate Advisory and Banking. “We are also pleased to expand our relationship with the Sucafina team after knowing them for many years.”
