Initially, we worked with three Nicaraguan growers connected through highly-respected coffee sourcing partner ECOM. We have since expanded our relationship to include US partner, Genuine Origin, a company created specifically to change the way specialty coffee is sourced and supplied.
As we grow, Bonaverde sourcing facilitators, or Coffee Scouts, will take responsibility for onboarding growers to the marketplace. We have a set of guidelines that we use to not only test the quality of the coffee but also to ensure fair trading practices. We expect all growers to receive at least 25% above production price for their coffee. Further, we aim to tell their stories and help build their brands through our digital Coffee Concierge.
