This feature helps prospective buyers isolate what is immediately geographically accessible and relevant to them from a worldwide selection.
With many spot coffees split between warehouses in Australia, North America, and Europe, V-Hub users need a way to explore all their options.
A platform like V-Hub helps roasters gauge value. Having a clear understanding of a coffee’s location and more broadly an awareness of the shipping costs will only help time-strapped green buyers in their efforts to balance cost with quality and traceability
Buyers use the Warehouse Filtering to highlight coffees that are located in warehouses that are geographically closer to their locations and to focus on specific warehouses. Here is how it will help V-Hub customers search.
Focus on a region - Importers on V-Hub have coffees distributed across warehouses worldwide. Buyers can filter to find coffees immediately accessible in their part of the globe.
|Beyond regional filters, buyers can also filter to one or more warehouses. There are many reasons why buyers will select a certain warehouse: distance from roastery, hours of operation, standards for managing specialty coffee, facilities to handle organics, pre-existing business relationships, etc.|
Buyers can also use the warehouse filter to make consolidating several purchases easier. A benefit of this being that they can use it to find a few bags of another coffee from the same warehouse to complete a pallet.
On V-Hub, it’s great to discover a beautiful 90 plus or a completely new coffee from an origin that’s new to you. But when the coffee is a spot offering of only a few bags on the other side of the world, it can require considerable extra time, effort, and costs to source. Filtering presents what is immediately available in your region. We just want to direct a prospective buyer to coffees that are readily accessible, while allowing them to also explore everything V-Hub has to offer.
