IBM has partnered with Farmer Connect to launch a blockchain supported app that allows consumers to make informed choices and promote sustainability by letting them learn details about the coffee beans they purchase.

IBM’s Blockchain technology powers the app that tracks the coffee beans’ journey. Each participant in the network, be it, farmers, wholesalers, or retailers, have been providing with a level of permission that determines their access to the blockchain network that allows them to view the details and make additions. 

It will enable better interactions on the origin of the coffee between its stakeholders, including the consumer. David Behrends, the founder of Farmer Connect, said,

The app demonstrated using Bluestone Lane coffee products at the CES. It expected to hit the market early this year and users in the US and Canada, Europe will be able to track their Folgers 1850 and Beyers 1769 respectively. 

Another unique feature of this app is to allow consumer’s use of blockchain technology to make direct contributions to the farmer who sourced their coffee. This will help to fund local projects, and users can track their participation on the app, providing transparency. In the future, the app will connect users directly to a farmer’s digital wallet. 

Calling the app an attempt to humanize the relationship between consumers and their coffee, Behrends also said that it lets consumers understand the process involving coffee making better.

IBM’s leader also clarified that the app powered by its blockchain technology but is not part of IBM’s Food Trust project as its goal is not to test a technique but to create a sustainable network.
