WHAT IS FAIR TRADE?
At its simplest, Fair Trade coffee means that coffee farmers get a fair deal for their hard work. This translates into better prices and wages for farmers, safer working conditions for producers, and better protection of the environment. In addition, Fair Trade pricing specifically designates funds to invest in much-needed local community projects including education, construction and infrastructure, health care, and clean water.
Certified organic coffee means that our coffee farmers use only natural processes and materials to grow and process their coffee. Organic coffee is grown without using synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilizers, there by contributing to the health of the coffee trees and beans, the soil, the water, the farmers. Organic farms also help to combat climate change by emitting less carbon than chemical farms.
