ROASTING IS SUBJECTIVE, BUT TRANSPARENCY IS CLEAR
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 Luiz Guarnizo directly earned for his 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.
