Coffee: Peeze Nicaragua and Brazil

Coffee from Nicaragua and Brazil

Peeze’s coffee from Nicaragua has the lowest true costs of the three coffees assessed in this study, which is six times lower than the conventional coffee from Brazil.

Location: Nicaragua
Year: 2015
Description: True Price calculated and compared the true price of the client’s Nicaraguan coffee with Nicaraguan Fairtrade coffee and  conventional coffee from Brazil. Next, True Price identified and assessed two projects that could further reduce the environmental externalities of the coffee; micro-irrigation could reduce the true price with 23%, with a pay-back time of the initial investment of less than one year. A bio-digester was also identified as a financial viable solution for water pollution.
