OUR TECHNOLOGY
REIMAGINES FAIR
TRADE COFFEE

FOLLOW YOUR TIP FROM YOUR CUP TO THE FARM

TRACK WHERE YOUR TIP GOES.

TRACE THE ORIGIN OF YOUR
COFFEE.

FUND FARMER PENSIONS.
On propina, consumers and roasters alike can trace a coffee bean back to its origin. We partnered with an AgTech innovator in Colombia to merge mobile spectrometry, cloud technology + GPS to trace your coffee from seed to cup.

Use the store code when sending a tip, and your funds will go to pension accounts for the laborers of the farms that produce your coffee.

We also provide a medium for direct communication, as farmers send photos and videos to tippers through social media for you to trace the impact of your tip.

HARVESTING THE FUTURE

You should care about the origin of your coffee and the sustainability of coffee farming around the world.

Coffee prices are at decade lows but retail coffee prices increase each year. Farmers in Colombia are selling below their cost of production.

85% of coffee farmers in Colombia have no savings. propina provides security, so the farmers can invest in sustainable farming methods to help them grow their coffee business.

We trace the coffee from seed to cup to ensure that the small farmers are fairly compensated for their work.

YOUR TIP FUNDS PENSIONS

We partner with Colpensiones, the Colombia's public pension fund administrator, to harvest a future for the farmer and his family.

After each harvest we distribute tips to our partners at the public pension fund of Colombia for each farmer and worker.

When you leave a tip on our site, the funds go to the General Cafetero Fund to support healthcare, education for the coffee farmer's families and other initiatives.
