Hey Klaus! What data is discovered on the entrance of the brand new bag?
We had one huge purpose with the brand new luggage, and that was to extend the dimensions and visibility of the farmer title and simplify the data.

It then says who the coffee is “produced in companionship with” as we predict there’s typically an excessive amount of credit score going to the roastery. We needed to verify folks perceive it’s a joint (even collective) effort.
Dyrkningssted means Origin, so it may specify the area, nation and if there’s extra information, like a cooperative. After which lastly High quality Bonus, which is the worth we’ve paid FOB in share over the C-Market value.
