How much is the farmer paid | Worka
Do you ever ask your barista how much the farmer gets paid?
08.02.2024Casper Rasmussen

To acknowledge the outstanding quality in the cup, we have chosen to pay 135% above the market price for Habtamu Fekadu'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 Worka

Worka is a small village in the Yirgacheffe region. The terroir contributes to elegant coffees with floral notes. The coffee undergoes the classic washed process, resulting in a traditional Ethiopian profile with a refreshing acidity. 

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.

Worka 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 pink pillar represents the price that Coffee Collective paid directly to Habtamu Fekadu. This is the price we paid above the market price. Therefore, Habtamu Fekadu received $4,4 per pound for this harvest.
