Buyers Commission @ 3.5%

We are aiming to pass as much back to the producers as possible. This means we are spreading the cost of the auction amongst those of you who buy the coffee. This means this route to market is risk free for the producers. This also means we are creating a sustainable market for coffee and means more goes back to the producers to create higher quality coffee for you and your own customers.

Shipping & Exporting Arrangements

We are running these auction to promote direct trade between buyer and sellers. We want to develop the market place to make sustainable coffee the norm.

However, we still need to ensure you understand how you will get the coffee. The Farm Group Manager, Ermias Yitagesu will manage the process for you. They will export the coffee using the green coffee exporter Addis Exporter

The Farm Group Manager is responsible for the following during the sale of the coffee:

Reserve Prices

The farmers have asked us to put reserves on the coffee sold in the auction. You will see, if you are the highest bidder on a particular lot, but it is below reserve, you will be told you are below reserve. In order to buy the lot you will need to bid higher than the reserve to win it.

However, at the end of the auction we will go back to the farmers and provide them with a list of all bids. If they decide to sell below reserve they will. However if they don't we are afraid we will not be able to sell this coffee to you at your highest bid price. 

Why are we doing this?

The farmers have costs. All businesses have costs. They know what their costs are and they know what they need to break even. We are promoting sustainable coffee and sustainable trade. This is how we wish to provide it for these farmers.
