The organization was founded in 1983 to increase fair trade. Mainly they buy coffee beans from Tanzania Kilimanjaro Native Co-Operative Union but also from Bolivia and Ethiopia. They buy also Café Caracol, which comes from zapatist areas in Mexico. In Kehitysmaakauppa they roast espresso beans, instant coffee and filter coffee with two roasts: medium dark and dark.
