I won't speak for Tom directly, but (IMO) you can expect to see price increases around 30-40% at minimum.  Indeed Tom does do direct trade (Farm Gate) work with the farmers, but if the C-Market is floating around $1.70 the premiums of $1.95-$2.25 (and up) for harder work (equally better coffee) don't look as worth it.  So, because of this, we see prices across the board increase.
There have been many recent articles, forum posts, email posts and blog posts on the subject.  Here are some links to some I think are worth reading:http://www.coffeeshrub.com/shrub/blog/thoughts-markethttp://jasondominy.tumblr.com/post/3171409188/how-coffee-is-like-oil-why-you-shouldnt-be-pissed-tohttp://www.baristaexchange.com/forum/topics/anyone-following-international?xg_source=activity

Seeing the volatility in the middle east, in some of the coffee
producing regions, oil and coffee seem to both still be on the rise.
also with the low harvest in Colombia and with Brazil holding on for
higher profits, the floor/base prices shouldnt be lowering anytime
soon. i read this morning that robusta is following arabica in prices
as its being used more as a filler with the higher prices, thus
greater demand. How substantially will these price spikes affect SM
prices? i know that the prices they pay are usually based on the floor
