The FOB price of the coffee includes the price of the coffee plus all the costs to bring the coffee to the shipping vessel. To calculate this price, growers need to figure out how the container will be exported.
Roasters have a contract with Algrano and will pay Algrano the FOB value plus the costs to ship it. Algrano has a contract with exporter and will pay the FOB value to the exporter. Finally the exporter will sign a contract with the grower or the cooperative and will pay the agreed Farmgate price to the grower or cooperative. Full transparency on all costs from the farm to the roaster.
Unfortunately not. As Algrano acts as the importer of the coffee we need to pay the FOB value to the exporter and follow the payment process Roaster - > Algrano - > Exporter - > Producer. But the full price transparency prevents any surprises from happening!
Usually the grower is paid by the exporter once Algrano paid the exporter. This happens when Algrano receives the shipping documents, a few days after the shipping vessel has sailed. Some exporters might offer growers to get a direct payment when they deliver the coffee.
Preferably not. While it is technically possible to have multiple exporters in the same container, more than one exporter makes the logistics more complicated, prone to errors and therefore increase risks of delays. Why? Because each exporter has to produce a set of shipping documents (Bill of Lading, Origin Certificate, Phythosanitary certificate, Invoices among other official documents depending on the origin.). These documents must be checked and sent on time for the container to be imported. If one of the exporter does not comply perfectly, the entire shipment is delayed.
It depends from exporter to exporter. Some exporters will only accept the coffee ready for export and already bagged in exportable and marked bags. Other exporters offer additional services of milling and bagging. The information is available in each shared shipment listed or you can also contact the exporter directly.
