Looking to buy Fair Trade coffee? I totally believe in the power of Fair Trade sustainable products to create a better world with better products for everyone. I was fortunate enough to visit a Fair Trade farm a few years ago and witness the good that they can do first hand in creating schools and medical options for the farm workers. The Fair Trade Certified folks sent me a sampling of Fair Trade organic coffee beans and I am delighted to share information on the Fair Trade Coffee Companies I got to try.
Fair Trade Coffee Companies
Why support Fair Trade Coffee companies? Well, because you are going to drink coffee anyway and Fair Trade coffee is good quality coffee that does good things. To show you the power of Fair Trade choices, National Coffee Day was September 29th and Fair Trade Certified challenged everyone to celebrate by drinking #JustOneCup of Fair Trade coffee. If everyone in the U.S. participated, they could send an extra $2 million to much-needed projects in coffee producing communities, all because of one little choice! You can make a difference every day with just by using Fair Trade coffee beans.

The small-holder farmers in these co-ops use traditional wet processing methods and dry their coffee individually in the hot tropical sun. This makes for a nice, bright breakfast blend.

Since 1993, Taylor Lane has been committed to providing the most sustainable coffee possible. Fair Trade certification helps make that possible. This french roast is nice and dark like you expect but not so much as to lose the Fair Trade coffee beans’ inherent sweetness. These Fair Trade coffee beans are washed and sun-dried.
Wicked Joe Organic Coffees
Full body and intense flavor meet smoky undertones and a touch of sweetness in this balanced blend. This is an excellent balanced blend of high grown coffees and plenty bold!
