Fair trade & organic coffee is grown on all continents, predominately in South America. Our produt line is available in whole bean only.
Fair trade is a movement whose goal is to help producers in developing countries to get a fair price for their product. To help reduce poverty, provide for the ethical treatment of workers and promote environmentally sustainable practices.
Organic coffee is produced under strict certification guidelines. Growers do their best to ensure the methods are as environmentally friendly as possible. It is very often shade grown under large shade trees.
In term of environmental protection, organic is superior to high tech methods of clearing out wide regions around coffee plantations. The soil is protected from erosion. The habitat and food sources for birds and wildlife remain intact.
