Coffee Economics with Karl Wienhold: Are Microlots Good for Farmers?

Microlot coffee

In the last episode of Coffee Economics with Karl, host Karl Wienhold of the Colombian coffee trading company Cedro Alto explored how microlots often work in the green coffee marketplace, noting how rarely they are actually purchased as such.

Further challenging the win-win narrative surrounding traceable microlot coffees, the latest episode of Coffee Economics with Karl more specifically questions whether microlots actually work for farmers.

Of course, there is no such thing as a “typical” farm, but here Wienhold plays with some conservative estimates while creating a cost-benefits analysis for farmers thinking of investing more in higher-quality microlot production.
