011: Bringing Economic Freedom To Coffee Producers

It’s taken a while since our last educational talk in April.

But here is our second event to be hosted here at The Old Bank Residency

As one of the world's largest commodities, it is vital that we look closely for the opportunities to improve the livelihoods of those who produce the coffee we consume.

That means long term financial investment to improve processing and to improve the livelihoods of the families who dedicate every waking moment to producing some of the best coffee in the world is necessary.

Jessie May from Raw Material will be discussing development through trade in Colombia, with a direct focus on the profits received by the producers that are enjoyed at the consumer end of the value chain.

This will be an informative look into what drives the market, and how this information can be used to provide stable and vital profits for coffee farmers.

The talk will be followed by a tasting of Colombian coffees, who receive on average 2.5x the annual profits through working with Raw Material.

Josh & Jessie.
