Story

Dukunde Kawa is a well-run organization led by a democratically elected president, administrative board, management team, and general assembly. This group has steadily improved the organization’s agronomic and processing practices, as well as focused on social projects. As a result, Dukunde Kawa today produces extraordinary lots and institutes high-quality environmental and social programs. In 2012 the co-op won the prestigious Sustainability Award from the Specialty Coffee Association of America for its efforts in realizing the benefits of shade-grown coffee and restorative replanting.

Dukunde Kawa’s member base has grown substantially since its 2003 formation, expanding from 300 coffee growers to more than 2,000. In the same period the co-op became Fair Trade certified, using the premiums its coffee commands to invest in its farmers, the cooperative, and the community. Eighty percent of Dukunde Kawa’s members are women; they market their coffee separately as women-grown coffee, garnering earnings that go toward child education and improvements that directly affect the lives of community members. The women have also established a sewing association and have implemented a program to produce and export traditional Rwandan baskets, broadening the co-op’s trade skills.

Green Cost

The subject of paying for green coffee is inherently complicated. While the amount paid is very important, the payment terms and type of contract negotiated during the purchase are also paramount. Paying $5/lb of coffee can be a great price, but could be detrimental to a producer if the payment terms exceed that of their needs. Here we will dive into not only what was paid for the coffee, but how the coffee was purchased. There is a glossary of terms to be found below which will aid in your understanding of industry terms.

Farm Gate - This reflects what is paid to the producer of the coffee at the farm level. Oftentimes in terms of our relationship coffees, FOB is fairly close to the farm gate price, except for countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, when it is very difficult to trace back all the way to the producer.

FOB - Free on Board. This means that the seller is responsible for any overland fees that happen before the coffee is on board the ship. This is our most frequently listed green cost, as it is the most simple way to present what we pay a seller, but it does not reflect what the person growing the coffee was paid.

EXW- This most often reflects the 'spot' price that we paid for a coffee. All of the cost is paid by the importer, and more often than not the FOB price as well as the transport costs are unknown.
