Sustainable Profile is about growing together with our producers. We achieve this through open and honest conversations with them. If you ask, most producers would tell you that they are looking for partners that can purchase a wide range of their coffees - not just the micro- and nano lots.
That is where our SP coffee comes into the picture. It’s focused on purchasing larger lots from the producers we already purchase our small April lots from. In this way, we create more value for the farmer and make sure we get the highest quality coffee in volumes that allow you to enjoy the same coffee all year round.
We never leverage our partner farmers to support our growth, by asking them for lower prices. Instead, we let the farmer tell us what price they want - from that we do an evaluation of the coffee making sure it correlates with our quality standards.
Since the start of this project, we have grown from 50 bags of coffee the first year to 200 bags for the 2020 season.
