The coffee beans in our house blends of brewed coffee and espresso are all certified Fair Trade.

More than 25 million people in 50 countries depend on coffee farming for their livelihoods. The price farmers receive for their beans has a direct impact on their quality of life. In recent years, coffee beans have been trading at such depressed levels on world markets that many farmers are forced to make unfortunate choices. In some cases, farmers must decide between sending their children to school or having them work in the fields to make ends meet. In other cases, farmers stop growing coffee altogether and instead plant coca or other crops for the illegal drug trade.

Fair Trade is designed to address these problems by ensuring that farmers get a guaranteed minimum price for their product. By buying Fair Trade, you can be assured that you’re helping farmers receive a living wage for their coffee beans and to keep their children in school where they belong.

All of the coffees that go into our house blends of espresso and brewed coffee are certified Fair Trade. Any single-origin coffees that we sell are either certified Fair Trade or part of our Farmer Dividend Program ™.
