Where Does our Green Coffee Come From?
We often get asked the question whether or not we buy sustainable coffee that is fairly traded?
In 2021 and 2022 we formed 2 new Direct Trade relationships with coffee farm in Brazil and Australia.
In June 2022 we formed a key direct trade relationship with Australian farmer Jack Murat estate in Mareeba, Queensland to start integrating Australian-grown coffees in our Premium blends as well as offering 100% Australian-grown coffee as a single origin option.
We had lengthy discussions with Plum at his farm to understand his farming processes and costs of inputs and labor and asked him what price he would like to get for his coffee and agreed to pay the price he named to ensure his farm runs profitably and sustainably.
We also directly trade our Brazilian coffee with Ismael Andrade and Romulo Andrade from Sao Silvestre Estate and contribute a higher average price per kg of their coffee directly to Ismael's bank account to ensure that the money goes directly to his farm and is spend where it is needed most.
Ismael's coffee is imported for us from Brazil by FTA Coffee Traders and it comes to our roastery from FTA 100% carbon-neutral.
We make it our priority to buy sustainably farmed coffees in conjunction with our trading partners that ensure that coffee farmers that we buy our coffee from get paid a fair price for their hard work and dedication to produce high grade coffees that we carefully roast and blend for your enjoyment.
