Knowing our coffee pricing
The price for Colombian coffee is composed of 2 factors: price of coffee on the platform ICE (Intercontinental Exchange), plus the premium for Colombian coffee, which is known as differential, this differential varies daily according to market circumstances, we as exporters have the option of fixing the price on the ICE when we consider appropriate, which is why customers must have a futures account in order to perform this operation.
In either of the two cases mentioned, the price is FOB Basis. If you need CIF, please let us know.
Now, if the client does not have an account or prefer not to have it, we can handle a fixed price for billing, which is established at the time of the contract and shall consist of the sum of the 2 factors mentioned above, this will be considered as the final sale price will not lead to change.
