Rewarding farmers for their hard work. We hold ourselves accountable to paying our farmers a higher price above the going market rate. In 2013 we paid a premium of 23% above market rates, in 2014 our premiumwas 24%. We work with roughly  2000 small holder farmers, roughly half of the farmers in the area, and hope to increase this number in the coming years. 

 We put a great emphasis on our farmer relationships and the traceablity of our beans. With any purchase of our beans, we are able to provide a list of every farmer that has contributed to the lot as well as their location, phone numbers (if they have them), and what percentage they contributed to the lot. We provide full transparency on how much each of our farmers are paid - and are committed to making sure farmers are paid fairly for their hard work.
