Hurtt's Java Seeds is an independent roaster of specialty coffee beans. The company budgets
two months ahead, so that in early January, it is time to plan for March. During March, the
company plans to sell 10,000 pounds of beans. At the end of February, the company expects
to have 2,000 pounds of raw green coffee beans (costing \$4,000) and 800 pounds of roasted
beans (costing \$4,000) in inventory. Hurtt's would like to have 1,000 pounds of green coffee
beans and 500 pounds of roasted beans in inventory at the end of March. Hurtt's purchases
green coffee beans from the grower at \$2.00 per pound and sells the roasted beans for \$12 per
pound.
Hurtt's roasters hold 25 pounds of green coffee beans. It takes 15 minutes to roast the beans
to perfection. Because the roaster must be monitored by an employee at all times, each batch
requires 0.25 direct labor hours. During the roasting process, the green beans lose 20% of
their weight, so that 1.25 pounds of green (raw) beans must be used to produce one pound of
roasted beans. The standard direct labor rate is \$12 per direct labor hour. Variable overhead
is applied at the rate of \$80 per direct labor hour, and fixed overhead is budgeted at \$13,095
per month, including \$1,500 in equipment depreciation.
