How It Works

$.005/pound to ensure the future of coffee
  • Roasters agree to donate half a cent per pound/one cent per kilo of coffee purchased through participating importers.
  • Participating importers keep track of coffee sales to roasters, adding 50 basis points, or $.005, for every pound of coffee purchased. The contribution is included it as a cost of doing business on the roaster’s invoice, similar to docking costs,
brokerage fees, or warehousing costs.
  • The importer collects funds and disperses them to WCR four times a year.
  • Once we are set up with your importers, there is no work for you.
