Founded in 1993 by Dean Cycon, a former indigenous and environmental lawyer, Dean’s Beans mission is to use coffee as a vehicle for positive change. Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Company is a pioneer in the field of social responsibility, social justice, sustainable practices and ecological stewardship. The company’s mission is based on the premise that business can be an agent for meaningful change and still be profitable.
