How much is the farmer paid | Kieni
Do you ever ask your barista how much the farmer gets paid?
22.09.2023Klaus Thomsen

Thank you for choosing this coffee. Your choosing directly supports the Kieni Cooperative, our partners for the past 13 years. Our close relationship allows them to continuously improve the quality of their coffee year after year.

To acknowledge their exceptional efforts, we chose to pay 62% above the market price for this harvest, a commitment we refer to as a 'quality bonus.' Your choice plays a significant role in making this possible. Thank you for being a part of this rewarding journey.

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

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.

Kieni AB Quality Bonus

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.

Coffee Collective price compared to the market price

The blue pillar represents the price that Coffee Collective paid directly to the Kieni Cooperative. This is the price we paid above the market price. Therefore, the Kieni Cooperative received $3,86 per pound for this harvest.
