Roaster and Keen co-founder, Bonne Postma travelled to the Agua de Nieve farm in Paru. He met with the farmers who created this fruity, Peruvian coffee and, not only did he fall in love with these beans, but he saw great potential in the farm itself.
This is a new direct trade project for Keen, and we’re so excited to support these farmers in growing to their full potential by paying them what they deserve.
We pay a premium for these beans. Twice as much as the current C-market (conventional coffee with prices that is based on the trading index) would. This makes a huge difference in the farmer’s standard of living. And, it gives them the opportunity to invest in their farms, improve quality, and expand their production capacity.
This project is the result of a collaboration with Lisanne Oonk. Lisanne, a trader from Cultivar, worked with the farmers to improve the quality of their coffees and bought their first harvests with her own savings. Her passion for this project is what made us confident to invest and work alongside her.
We’re so proud to play a role in Peru’s specialty coffee revolution
