To acknowledge the outstanding quality in the cup, we have chosen to pay 156% above the market price for Habtamu Fekadu Aga's coffee. We call it a 'quality bonus' so you know the direct impact your coffee choice has on the farmer. Thank you for being a part of this rewarding journey.

We have laid out all the numbers for you in our Transparency Report

About Bekele
Bekele Kachara runs several small coffee processing sites in the same area. The one we work with is the highest, where they grow and process coffee at 2,350 masl in the Murago area of Sidama. This could be one of the highest growing coffee farms. Everything is produced without electricity or water, and native trees are planted everywhere to in- terfere as little as possible with nature.

How much is the farmer paid? 
Coffee Collective trades directly with producers, ensuring that the payment goes into the right hands. When you purchase a bag of coffee you will know how much the producer is paid.

Coffee Collective price compared to the market price

Transparency in coffee prices
The graph above shows you the difference between the quality bonus and the ICO market price, as well as the Fairtrade price. Neither the market price nor Fairtrade clearly and transparently informs you about how much money actually reaches the farmers.

In contrast, the quality bonus provides you with a market comparison that is transparent.

The light red pillar represents the price that Coffee Collective paid directly to Bekele. This is the price we paid above the market price. Therefore, Bekele Kachara received $4.75 per pound for this harvest.
