We're working to create a new normal for the way green coffee is traded across the world.
The hardware that new normal hinges on is the relationship itself between farmer and roaster. Opening the lines of communication between roaster and producer means that farmers are no longer groping around in the dark. They can plant, and manage and harvest with intention and a clear mission.
We support relationships between farmers and roasters on both sides of the trade throughout the whole supply chain cycle.
Our work begins with farmers by studying and addressing the health of their soils and their past agricultural practices.
Training and implementation of new agricultural practices and inputs is done through our sister company Blue Marble BioChemical.
We have our own team of experienced producers that can work with farmers to improve every step from harvest to export.
Farmers have intentionally been kept in the dark regarding trade and demand issues and we are intentionally reversing this trend.
A key activity - and one of the most complicated and risky - in the new normal is providing fair prices to farmers pre-season.
We are constantly expanding our network of international divisions and partners to manage green coffee's complex issues and risks.
What was once impossible is our core capability. We enable roasters of all shapes and sizes to work direct with farmers to create their own special advantages.
Finding the right relationship is not as easy as answering the first cold call email you receive from someone at origin. We wish ourselves that this was a cheaper lesson.
We have producers, Q-graders, Q-instructors and roasters on our team to manage QC and support issues from post harvest to post final delivery.
We work from a whole crop perspective. We can find the right source for anything from competition worthy micro-lots to mass-market commercial coffees.
Building on the past experience of our Founder, we have made it possible for roasters to source less than full container volumes as well as traditional FCL volumes.
This is a challenging area and it involves issues ranging from cash to contracts . We also provide financing and insurance at the right time and the right term.
Transparency has little value without control. Our Co-Mission program coffees are purchased at the farm-gate level according to prices that our customers help set.
We can arrange storage in traditional commodity warehouses or local to you warehouses. We can manage warehouse stock for you and arrange final mile delivery.
