Fabio is consistently great producer. He’s part of a collective set up by Francy Elena Osorio Criollo. The collective power of the group allows them to greater access to buyers, and education about better growing & processing techniques. Fabio has been practicing ecological production, making his own organic bio-prep fertilizers on farm for quite some time now, he also uses no sprays and no herbicides. A premium of 50,000 pesos / carga was added for his clean production.

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 & within that, the Farmgate price, what Fabio directly earned for her coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, this coffee was shipped to Melbourne, quality assessments completed, roasted (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retailed, adding significant costs. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
