TRANSPARENCY

Transparency Report: Warmikuna, Ecuador (PDF)

2018 marked a statement of intent for us, to ensure that people growing exceptional coffee are still doing so in decades to come. 

We started publishing the price we pay to producers exposing the traceability they deserve and discerning drinkers' demand as the new norm. We refer to the most direct payment as ‘Farmgate’.

We’re proud we can publish this for our single origins and house blends.

Seven Seeds has been involved with the Speciality Coffee Transaction Guide as data donors for the past five years. We have signed 'The Pledge', a commitment to transparency in coffee trading.

We also share this information in our Annual Impact Report.

Warmikuna is a blend of coffees sourced from two neighbouring farms in Ecuador. These farms, each spanning around 2 hectares, yield smaller quantities individually, hence the need to combine them to create an exportable volume. The Bourbon and Catimor undergo a meticulous process of picking, sorting, and a 32-hour fermentation period. Following this, they are washed twice and left to dry for 15 to 25 days, depending on the local climate.

Ecuador boasts breathtaking landscapes and ideal altitudes that promise exceptional coffee quality when cultivated with care. The small-scale farming has historically posed challenges in maintaining traceability. Much like its neighbour to the South, Peru, most farms are organic by default, with official certifications being expensive for producers to obtain.

Previously considered too expensive to feature regularly, Ecuadorian coffee is now more competitively priced due to drastic price increases at other origins. Could this newfound affordability signal a resurgence of Ecuadorian coffees in the Australian market? The future looks promising!
