Registered TTC Coffees Provide Benchmark Pricing Information for the 2017 Harvest

Posted on 31st Jan 2017 in Roasters

This Insight examines the green FOB prices paid for eighty coffees that were registered on the Transparent Trade Coffee site in 2016. Setting aside three outliers, the average green price per pound (GPP) was $3.81. Looking more closely, we see that 21 coffees from Africa had an average GPP of $4.10 and that 15 coffees from Costa Rica had an average GPP of $4.67. We look forward to tracking these averages as the sample of TT Coffees continues to grow in 2017.
