About the Roaster
Modus on sustainability:
‘We believe that when it comes to the coffee industry, we need to be proactive in ensuring the future of delicious, high-quality coffee. In September last year the c-market price hit below $1 USD/lb (for the first time in over 10 years, and since the middle of February this year, the price has been consistently sitting well below this mark – and in some cases, depending on origin, this is far below the production cost for producing good coffee.’
