What is the Lottery?

View this video for full detailed breakdown.

Every four months we plan to host a new season of the Forward Lottery - kind of like a game show. The intention is to push roasters outside their comfort zones and challenge their perspectives using a fun, community-driven, and playful concept.

Every season, we will select a new coffee. We believe these coffees will have exceptional cup quality and a wonderful background story. Unfortunately, we will not share any of the information about the coffee itself with you‚ÄĒwell, at least not until we crown the winner at the end of the Season.

The Lottery will always be $30 buy-in per kilogram of coffee, plus shipping, available in 6kg or 12kg. This cost is an effort to speak to coffee pricing for quality green coffee that is thought-provoking, complex and dynamic that we personally love to drink and serve.

We also think this amount gives you the ability to serve and sell to friends and clients alike - ensuring that you're profiting off your participation in the Lottery, while also learning and growing on your roasting journey.

 

Value Proposition

So, you’re probably wondering why we're doing this. Through our efforts, we believe we can create dialogue around coffee pricing. By increasing the expectation for pricing on the specialty side, we can change the level of respect for coffee producers globally. By raising the ceiling, we believe there is potential that together we can also lift the floor.

1st Place -  $3000 in prizes, including online credit, an engraving on a gold trophy we're working on sourcing, a season pass for a future Forward Lottery, and of course, bragging rights
