Mercanta supplies speciality roasters around the world with the world’s very best green coffees. Founded in 1996 in a small office in Southwest London, Mercanta now sources a huge variety of outstanding coffees from 20 producing countries, which our experienced team of Coffee Hunters offer from our 6 warehouses located on three different continents. We are proud to offer impartial and professional advice and efficient deliveries to more than 40 countries worldwide.
Mercanta’s first priority is quality – we only buy coffees that we think are exceptional, and we cup them daily in our state of the art lab.
SUSTAINABILITY & PRICE TRANSPARENCY
Mercanta has been at the forefront of speciality coffee since 1996. All our business is done at a fixed price, above the cost of production, with an eye towards sustainability and outright, reliable prices for producers. This, combined with our diligence in seeking out the best coffees the world has to offer, is how we’ve built our stellar reputation.

Relationships are crucial to sourcing high-quality coffee. We pay premium prices, and we treat our producers as long-term business partners.
Mercanta also builds lasting relationships with our customers, large and small. Every roaster is different, and we work to understand our customers’ individual green coffee needs to make sure they have the information they need to make buying decisions, roast and market their coffee.
