    Why roasters should negotiate prices with growers:  4 tips how to do it

    All the coffee lots you find at Algrano have been priced by the producers. All offers made by them are also based on fixed prices, which is nothing unusual when it comes to specialty micro-lots, but not necessarily the norm when it comes to commercial lots, which can also be priced based on differentials. Pricing coffee is a complex topic that relies on the knowledge a producer has of the market beyond the NY rates. Sometimes the pricing is spot on. Sometimes it isn’t.
