This coffee was our first step into the world of "transparently traded". What this means is means that we know exactly the costs all the way through the chain. The key part of this style of coffee trading is that the farmer receives a fair price for their coffee and receives payment as soon as we agree to purchase their coffee.
This lot comes from about 60 smallholders from the Lempira department in Honduras.
