To acknowledge the outstanding quality in the cup, we have chosen to pay 250% above the market price for Luis Edgar Camacho'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 Camacho
Luis Edgar Camacho lives on his farm, La Palma, in Palestina, just south of Pitalito in the Huila region. Luis Edgar comes from a coffee farming family. It was his father who, through working as a cherry picker, was able to save money and purchase the current farm that Luis now runs.

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.  

Transparency in coffee prices
The graph below 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.
