    Pre-contracting helped this roaster secure coffee at the best price

    Quarter Horse Coffee in the UK is pre-contracting more and more. By acting fast, they avoided the price rally in 2021 following the Brazilian frost. They also secured one of the few lots available to source directly from Costa Rica in 2022 despite the country’s lower production, which led to most coffees selling out.
