While the price of a cup of coffee in Europe has been steadily increasing over time, the price farming families sell at often cannot even cover their costs. Why? Most of the profit stays in the middlemen’s hands. In HILO we aim to change this by providing an alternative system to conventional coffee trade. We are weaving a thread by connecting you with Colombian coffee farmers in order to guarantee a stable income for their families and social actors to help heal communities. Join the weave!
