    Was keen to give it a go, but no info about the coffee (blend or S.O.) Probably a blend, but still, no info.

      Both Worlds Coffee starts with coffee from Kaapi Royale - a selectively processed coffee from Karnataka, India….In addition to Kaapi Royale, we work with our sister company Timely Coffees to add seasonal lots to the blend, to create something truly special. Both Worlds Coffee is a seasonal blend, but not like you know it…

    Do you have any info about roast dates? The ethical stuff and pay what you want is great, certainly see the value in it. But having that info easily available is very important to those who love good coffee.

    A great sounding concept. I hope it goes well and is not abused.

    • What about the farmers if great concept…

      • Huh?

        • Are farmers out of pocket?

          • @ilovefullprice: How would farmers be out of pocket?
            The offer has a minimum cost / purchase (which apparently covers their costs) and you can pay over that if you can/want to.

            • @GG57: Not sure if the min. is fair value for the farmers. Not about the option to pay more, but how low/high the min. is:

              These are the costs associated with roasting 1 x 1kg bag of Both Worlds Coffee. Our minimum price is set to cover these costs, and nothing more.

              Green Coffee Beans: $5.50/kg
              Bag: $1.00
              Labour: $5.00/kg
              Transaction Fees*: $0.50c
              Operational Costs**: $4.00/kg

              Total: $16.00/kg

            @ilovefullprice: I mean if you are actually interested in finding out, you can click through the site they say pretty clearly: "Our import partners here at Both Worlds Coffee, who we're proud to work with. Transparent, trustworthy, and always reliable, we feel confident our supply chain is in good hands working with suppliers like Upstream."

            Then Upstream say a lot about their responsibility:
            Our objective was a simple one. With shared camaraderie, knowledge, experience & values we work to bring equality to all facets of green coffee, from sourcing to roasting.

            Fast forward to today, we are determined to play a fundamental role in every step from the farmer to the roaster level, by committing to:

            // Empowering women in our industry – We’re an active IWCA member and an equal employment opportunity provider.

            // Ensuring farmer and supply chain profitability by paying fair prices – We regularly donate funds & data to Emory University’s Specialty Coffee Transaction Guide in the hope of better transparency within our industry.

            // Increasing environmental sustainability – Our current projects centre on recycling programs and plastic usage; yes - the high barrier plastic sacks are one of them!

            Contributing to a lasting legacy for future generations in coffee – We actively participate in various green coffee auctions & promote these amongst Australian roasters at a cost/non-profit basis.

            // Building strong relationships at all levels – We have always had a hands-on, ownership-based approach to supporting the Australian coffee roasting community, with a focus on understanding quality, purpose and budget.

            Sourcing our coffees from single farms, mills and cooperatives with sustainable, transparency & farmer profitability have been essential to upholding our values.

            We also encourage education and participation across the supply chain. With better education across the chain, the better the future of coffee and the millions of people involved with it.

              @mark-emark: Yeah it basically boils down to trust in what they say. Could be worthwhile if they were Oxfam certified.

    Good deal except for shipping which kills the deal.

  • Just grabbed a kilo bag @ $20. Plus shipping it comes to the same price as the Airjo deal which is also on at the moment. For the same price, I'm happy to try something new and support Both Worlds
