A sustainable future for coffee is uncertain. More can be done

Issue: Buying certified sustainable coffee doesn’t always guarantee the best for producers.For more: Specialty Coffee Association (SCA)Our Answer: Many a certifications seek to ensure that producers receive the price they deserve and one that allows them to operate in a sustainable way. One example of that is Fairtrade certified coffee, which can be found in your local supermarket and guarantees for the producer the Fairtrade Minimum Price of $1.40 per pound. When compared with the SCA's price threshold for profitability of $2.50 per pound, this still leaves a gulf of $0.85 per pound and highlights the true point of sustainability - a point which Fairtrade seems to fall short of, as do many other widespread sustainability-focused programmes.

Through direct-to-source relationships, many independent coffee roasters are able to overcome the problem of fair prices through fixed term contracts, which provides producers with certainty. Only on certainty can producers commit to sustainable practices. By committing to purchases from an independent coffee roasters, many of which can be found on the GUSTATORY marketplace, you commit to purchase from their supply chain and their focus on ethical and sustainable innovation.
