Purchase planning 

If you know what you’re looking for in terms of volumes, processing methods and/or specific washing stations let us know! You can also prebook coffees with us in small or big quantities. For more than 100 bags of contracted coffees you could buy them directly on FOB terms and do the imports yourself, or ask us for deals on shipping and financing.  

November & December is the peak in terms of visiting washing stations and understanding the overall quality of the harvest. Mid January throughout April is peak for cuppings. Washed coffees are normally ready to cup mid January. Naturals often start to see our cupping table from middle of February and onwards.
