In 2021 coffee producers all over the world expertly turned ripe cherries into green beans full of potential. We roasted 22,907kg of these green beans, resulting in 19,772kg of brown beans. We moved locations, roasted off-site, and gradually re-established a routine.
Thanks for coming along with us.

Green Coffee Purchases: Interactive Map
Please click on the map pins to view the coffees that we purchased and roasted in 2021. You’ll find the same numbers listed in our transparency spreadsheet, alongside some more detailed information about the people who grew this coffee, and the unique contexts that influence their cost of production. Understanding the labour involved in coffee production and who performs this labour is equally as important as FOB and Farmgate prices. Our aim with this map is to illustrate the amount of work involved in producing each cup of coffees, and why each coffee costs what it does.
