What is NKG BLOOM?
NKG BLOOM is an initiative of the Neumann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG) to ensure the long-term viability of green coffee supplies by providing smallholder farmers with the opportunities and resources they need to run their farms at full potential and enter a pathway out of poverty. Through dedicated teams within NKG export companies, NKG BLOOM identifies and addresses barriers to farmer success and offers individuals and farmer groups bespoke combinations services centered around financing. Already changing lives in early markets, NKG BLOOM’s goal is to meaningfully improve the livelihoods of 300,000 coffee-farming families across 10 countries by the year 2030.

Can I get involved?
NKG BLOOM offers roasters a two-fold value proposition: Today, the possibility of participating in efforts that positively impact communities; and in the future, NKG BLOOM coffees. Please ask our team for more details, or visit nkgbloom.coffee for updates.

How does it work?

Farmer Services Units (FSUs)
Permanent FSUs are being set up within participating NKG export companies, o en building on existing efforts. These teams offer farmers the essential services they need to run their farms at full potential, including financing, inputs (fertilizers, etc.), seedlings for renovation, access to markets, information and infrastructure, as well as agronomy and business intelligence.

The Smallholder Livelihoods Financing Facility
Financing is often the core bottleneck faced by farmers. In a years-long effort, NKG worked with five organisations—USAID, IDH: The Sustainable Trade Initiative, and European banks ABN-AMRO, BNP Paribas and Rabobank—to create an innovative risk-sharing solution that minimises the risk of lending to some of the world’s poorest farmers. This $25 million revolving-credit facility creates a way for smallholder farmers and farmer groups to quickly and easily borrow needed funds.

Participating producers
Participating farmers are smallholders (they farm fewer than 30 hectares of coffee) and farmer organisations largely comprised of producers with fewer than 30 hectares. They commit to work in collaboration with our teams to run their farms as businesses and to improve upon prioritised social and environmental practices.

Global transparency and traceability
Technology is creating numerous possibilities to more efficiently provide services and share information along the value chain. A key component of NKG BLOOM is harnessing these possibilities, from apps for field staff, to payments via mobile money apps, to a platform enabling NKG customers to trace their coffees and learn about the services accessed by the farmers behind their coffees.
