Caravela Coffee Presents Farmgate: Producers in Crisis
November 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PSTFree
Coffee is currently being traded at the lowest prices in more than 15 years. Specialty coffee demands fairer prices for better-quality coffee. But without knowing how much farmers need to spend to produce a pound of coffee, and how this varies across countries and production methods, it’s hard to know what “sustainable prices” really are.
Join us at the La Marzocco Cafe as we host Alejandro Cadena, Co-Founder and CEO of Caravela Coffee and Badi Bradley, Caravela’s North American Sales Director. They will present the findings of a study they conducted on the costs of coffee production in Latin America.
“This presentation will uncover how much it costs to produce coffee in 7 Latin American countries: Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The majority of coffee producers are not aware of exactly how much it costs to produce a pound of coffee, leaving them unable to effectively budget and allocate resources throughout the year, keeping them in a continually vulnerable situation. By breaking down the cost structure for the average coffee farmer in each origin, we can begin to uncover what it takes for producers to operate sustainably.” – Caravela Coffee
