People walk into a store and pick up a package of ground coffee and then look at the price and go…no ways am I paying that for coffee! As coffee lovers and consumers we don’t really understand the process of coffee making and the costs that need to be covered in order to create a profitable and sustainable business. Dylan gave us an insightful run down of what goes into producing great coffee – from the time the soil is prepared  to the package on the shelf in a store. He also explained how the markets work and the business of Coffee. Sadly the farmer and producer hardly see any of the fruits of their labor and that the traders, distributors and restaurants take advantage of the industry, which has lead to a call for Fair Trade and for restaurants and coffee shops to reduce their prices. By reducing the price, coffee shops and restaurants will be able to make use of economies of scale – a good example and case study would be Deluxe Coffeeworks in Cape Town who only charge R10 a cappuccino – hear more about their successful methods.
