The cost breakdown
Investing in an IKAWA Pro V3 Sample Roaster costs US$4,270. For a Brazilian grower, the costs quickly rise to US$5,991 including shipping, VAT and import duties. Algrano contributed US$6,000 to cover for the first IKAWA that went to our long-time partner APAS. You were invited to contribute as much as you wished, there were no limits. You could contribute in EUR, USD, CHF or GBP, through a wire payment, we applied daily interest rates.
In support of this crowdfunding campaign, IKAWA doubled the impact by matching each funded Sample Roaster with a second! Therefore, the second Sample Roaster that went to Norcafé was already funded!
