Haymaker is our original espresso blend. We designed it to be a powerful combo with milk while still being a knockout as espresso.
We believe that the way forward as an industry is to talk about what we pay for our coffee. That’s what we mean we talk about transparency. For a closer look at our Transparency Project read more here.
An espresso blend is a mix of two or more coffees blended together to create a coffee that works well with milk. Most milk based coffees you drink will be blends. We look for coffees that will work well when added to milk and complement each other. Haymaker is always a sweet caramel coffee with a hint of orange.
The backbone of Haymaker for the third straight year. Grown by forty-three farmers who work together to sell their coffee while sharing resources and knowledge. We love this coffee and are visiting for the first time in December 2018. The plan is to help the growers run a coffee competition and buy microlot coffees from them next year.
We pay $7.78 F.O.B. AUD per kilo (for more info on the terms we use, like F.O.B, go here)
Guatemala Finca La Esmeralda
A part of Haymaker for the third year. Matt was first coffee roaster to visit this farm in the Sierra Las Minas mountains. This made the owner, Jesús Ramírez quite emotional. Jesús is a big part of his local community and helps feed malnourished children and provides dental and medical care.
We pay $6.92 F.O.B. per kilo
Guatemala La Cumbre
A new addition to Haymaker. La Cumbre is near Guatemala City and owned by Otto Block. Otto started growing coffee here in 1986 and now his daughter Ana runs the farm. Ana is a member of the Guatemala Women in Coffee organisation.
We pay $7.94 F.O.B. per kilo
Average F.O.B AUD per kilo $7.54
C’Market price $3.48
Fair Trade minimum $4.00
188% Higher than the fair trade minimum.
On top of the FOB price we pay for shipping to Melbourne, insurance and financing of the coffee. Once it lands in our roastery, we then pay to assess the coffee, roast it, bag it and ship it to our customers. We also lose 15-18% of each kilo due to moisture loss during the roasting process.
