ECC is a consumer co-operative. Consumer co-operatives are corporations owned and run by their customers who are, in turn, also their members. A great example of a co-operative like ECC is Mountain Equipment Co-op.
Becoming a member is easy! Anyone over the age of 16 can become a member by signing up for a monthly coffee subscription or by paying a one-time lifetime membership fee of $2.

*While members get an equal say in annual general meetings, they are not financially responsible or liable for the co-op’s decisions on a personal level. Our ultimate goal is to join our collective consumer power with other folks just like us. As a spirited, like-minded group of coffee drinkers, bonded by a common desire to change how the coffee industry works, we are kindling a movement for just and equitable trading practices between coffee producers and consumers.
The formula for success is simple: The more members we have, and the more demand for coffee we build - the more affordable it becomes, and the more we can provide for coffee farmers and labourers. This is consumer power, leveraged for the greater good! Join today!
