Fixed prices and healthy premiums encourage quality production from many farms.
Our Colombian coffee is comprised of small lots delivered by farmers who belong to a number of small associations located in Huila, Colombia. The coffees that build this single origin blend must meet rigorous physical characteristics and also meet a certain flavor profile. In return, the producers are paid a healthy premium to encourage this level of quality production.
During the 2018 coffee harvest, the average price paid to coffee farmers in Colombia was between 700,000 and 700,500 Colombian pesos per carga (one cargo being 125 kilograms of coffee). The coffee farmers who contribute to this lot are paid fixed prices - as opposed to prices that fluctuate with the Commodities Market, as is typical in Colombia. Producers who delivered to this lot were paid 1,050,000 Colombian Pesos per carga of coffee.
