Why you should pay more for your #coffee. via @dailycoffeenews

It is my understanding that the farmers that get above fair price for their coffee are doing fine. I am not talking ‘fair trade’ labels; I am talking about importers or traders that will pay what the coffee is worth and not mark it up 500% to sell to a roaster like myself. Of course the coffee has to be top grade, with little to no defects to guarantee a shot at getting top price. I believe some large buyers, brokers and unscrupulous traders are buying decent coffee for low prices because they can. There is also a lot of bad coffee out there, being sold for less $ per pound than good grade coffee for obvious reasons and being brewed in shops charging top dollar for it. *$ comes to mind. This has become what the public perceives as specialty coffee, unfortunately. There is an aspect that breaks the coffee business as much as at the farm level.
