  • The scissor experiment - Alasitas Gesha

    There are many experiments in processing specialty coffee at the moment. This coffee is lactic processed, which is highly interesting. But there is another experiment, underneath this, that excites us even more; how the coffee has been removed from the branch of the coffee plant and harvested without breaking the coffee cherries structure. Instead of picking the coffee by hand, this method involves cutting them off the branch, cherry by cherry, using scissors. We are not saying this is the direction to go, it is purely an experiment on how to increase the highest level of coffee even more.  You...

  • Transparency Report 2020

    Sustainability builds on the three pillars economy, agricultural and social. To be near sustainable, all of these three pillars need to be actively updated to standards year on year. Without one of the pillars, sustainability is unachievable. And I can tell you for sure, that nor agricultural or social will be looked after if we are not paying the real costs of the production. I think coffee prices should be even higher and Drop Coffee's ongoing goal is to pay more and more every year. The average price we paid for coffee based on the total 55864 lb (25 393 kilos) of coffee we bought in 2020 was 3.81 US$ per lb (pound) which is about 8.4 US$ per kilo. The average price over all coffees we bought from all farms was 6.13 USD per lb or 13.5 US$ per kilo. The average years of working with a farm were five years in 2020. All of the producers we have visited and know well.

  • Our choice of milk

    As apart of our work in ecological sustainability, we have a new choice of cows' milk at the café; Roslagsmjölk, and Havredal for vegan option.  The cows' milk is from four farms in Roslagen, where the cows are allowed to roam freely all year round and are given the opportunity to express their natural behaviors as well as graze grass and herbs on the valuable natural lands. The cows are fed by locally produced fodder and the farm is both Organic certified and approved by KRAV. The milk we find working well is 3% fat, sweet and creamy, yet you can...

  • Coffee Trends

    This morning I was on the show Mogonstudion at Swedish television talking about Coffee Trends. It is a recurent media topic and I am always happy to share a few trends I see it today. Here are my current four coffee trends in my opinion.  1. There is a love behind more cups of coffeeMore people are having a grinder at home and are ordering whole beans home from roasteries or their local coffee shop. Within Sweden, I have a feeling (read: in my bubble at least) that more people are using scales measuring up their coffee, whether it is...

  • Specialty Coffee Transaction Guide Released

    The 2020 Specialty Coffee Transaction Guide was released last week out of Emory University. Its tables and figures rely on contract data from 81 roasters, importers, exporters, cooperatives, and producers headquartered in twenty different countries. These data summarize 51,000 contracts that cover roughly 1.09 billion pounds of green specialty coffee valued at more than $2.1 billion. A global market that allows individuals and organizations to buy green coffees as near-commodities and then sell them as differentiated, high valued-added products does not ensure adequate compensation for coffee producers, families, and communities. In many cases, specialty coffee producers do not receive enough...

    Take this rare chance to join our small, quality-focused team at Drop Coffee Roasters.

  • Transparency report

    Here is the 2019 transparency report in full. This is mainly for producers being able to see how we are buying and for you as our customers to get an insight. The end goal is not for every customer to understand the data, but to spark conversations about why we need to pay more for coffee. This is the same reason why every single package that gone out of our roastery since August 2019 has the FOB price published on the label.  The current market price for coffee is less than the production cost, an equation that doesn’t add up...
