Price Structure

Our price structure has one main goal: Contribute as much as possible to develop a sustainable quality coffee production and earn as much as needed to keep our business running and growing naturally healthy.

Like you can see in the pie-chart, the major part of our prices goes back to producers, in order to make sure, that the work on the farms can develop in a sustainable way. We visit all farm at least 3 times a year to make sure, your payment is reinvested in increasing the environmental, social and quality standards on all farms!
