Most farmers do not make a living income from their coffee. Today, it’s not uncommon to pay $3.00 for a coffee, yet producers receive an average of 6¢ for the same cup.
Globally, there are over 21 million families who rely on coffee production. Yet it is an unreliable source of income. The prices consumers pay have continued to increase over the years but it’s an entirely different story for producers. The prices they receive have stagnated, and at times, even dropped.
While we enjoy our daily coffee, some producers see it as a poverty crop. The coffee industry’s roots in slavery and colonialism have led to appalling conditions and structural inequality in the long and obscure supply chain. A significant number of producers are being leveraged, exploited, and under-paid.
iFinca started with the idea that more revenue should be shared directly with coffee farmers. We make this possible by putting greater power in the hands of buyers like you.
Our mission is to improve farmers’ profit margins so their families have the chance of a sustainable future.
