Ramadhan Salum is the owner and managing director of his four washing stations. Salum’s washing stations have a solid reputation for producing exceptionally clean and top quality coffee. Salum sees a lot of value in supporting the local communities.
HARVEST July 2018
We believe in the future of coffee. We’re calling on the industry to pay sustainable prices, so coffee farmers don’t need to turn to other crops to survive. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price we paid to the exporter, unfortunately we weren’t able to publish the Farmgate price on this occasion. On top of FOB, this coffee was shipped to Melbourne, quality assessments completed, roasted (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retailed, adding significant costs.
