The process



The Robusta harvest season runs from January to March. Red Ripe coffee is picked by the farmers and sun dried to perfection. At the FTAK collection depots the coffee is checked for moisture (always below 12%) and bought by the cooperative. It is moved in truck loads to the curing works (factory) to be hulled, polished and graded. Representative samples are sent to prospective buyers and on confirmation of order, coffee is hulled, bulked, and preshipment samples are sent to the buyer. On confirmation order the produced lot of Robusta Cherry is shipped to the buyer. FTAK and its products (coffee, but also cashews, spices, cocoa) are fairtrade (FLO), EU organic and Rainforest Alliance certified. Furthermore, they are the first group in Asia to be certified according to the Small Producer Symbol (SPP, for its Spanish acronym), the first fair trade farmer-owned certification system.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
