Coffee Traceability in the Supply Chain

A World of Coffee Drinkers

Coffee Traceability: “Bean to Cup”

  • Farm & production: Input supply, cultivation, and harvesting
  • Processing: Exporters, producers, and cooperatives may have a hand at post-harvest processing
  • Roasting: A variety of factors, including localization and technique, impact this leg of the journey
  • Retailer: Productization includes packaging, labeling, branding, and getting the coffee to market
  • Consumption: “Into the hand of the consumer”
  • Disposal: After coffee has been consumed, its related packaging, vessels, and more are disposed of in a variety of ways (landfills, recycling, etc.)

Blockchain Technology and Coffee Traceability

  • Our system streamlines the whole supply chain, with tracking mechanisms that begin at the farm where the coffee is grown, and stick with the product through the buying station, dry milling warehouses, and through global transactions.
  • Irrefutable record keeping is achieved through blockchain technology, which can replace manual recordkeeping along the supply chain and build trust.
  • Traceability helps cooperatives improve the quality and profitability of their production. It enables downstream quality controls, as well as the ability to backtrack to upstream origin of high quality, high profit products.
