Transparency Report 2018

Commitment to quality is expensive. Very often, farmers do not earn enough to supply the coffee that is required to meet demand. Our current volume does not allow us to source all our coffees directly from origin so instead, we build long term relationships with partners which sustainably source exceptional coffees and pay a premium for it. In this manner, the producers and farmers are adequately compensated, establishing a reliable supply chain, away from the unpredictability of the commodity market.

The list show the cost of our coffees in SGD after shipping and taxes. It does not include the huge cost of storage, roasting and production in Singapore. We are happy to be able to pay a much higher and sustainable price than the average coffee commodity price (currently about 3.50 - 5.50 sgd/kg) to invest in better quality and sustainability.

We hope to be very transparent and share why our coffees are a little more expensive. Thank you for your support and we look forward to sharing more exceptional coffees in 2019
