Did you know that in every day tasks you can make a difference to change the world? For example: buying coffee, I love to buy great tasting gourmet coffee and it’s something that I buy recurrently (you can always find coffee in my pantry), so the question is: how can I make a change in the world by buying coffee? By studying a little, I discovered the answer; it is very simple and clear, buy Fair Trade and Organic Coffee. And there is another issue, is that change going to compromise the quality that I love in coffee? The answer is NO, Fair Trade and Organic coffee is high quality and indulgently delicious.
So… what is fair trade coffee?
Many small coffee farmers in developing countries receive prices for their coffee that are less than the costs of production, forcing them into debt and poverty.
Fair Trade Coffee is exported from marginalized farmers in developing countries around the world; it promotes sustainability because it guarantees that the farmers will receive fair prices per pound of coffee, which allows them to compete with the global market, giving them and their family security, economic self sufficiency, marketing and environmental knowledge, allowing social development and conservation of the environment, all the required tools to harvest great quality products.
A Certified Fair Trade Label Coffee guarantees:
o Fair Prices: Assures us that the coffee we drink was purchased under fair conditions. Farmers receive a fair price for their product, allowing prosperity, wealth and education to their family and children.
o Quality Products: by receiving a fair price for their production farmers avoid sacrificing quality, allowing excellent traditional farming methods that result in great quality coffee.
o Care for the Environment: most of the Fair Trade Coffee is certified organic and shade grown (help maintain biodiversity and reduce global warming).
What is Organic Coffee?
Organic coffee is usually grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Many organic farms incorporate environmental protections such as recycling.
Fair Trade and Organic Coffee is a big step to a positive life changing experience, it feels so good to drink a delicious cup of coffee, but it feels better if you know that that cup of coffee is also full of hope and every drop can make a small difference in the world.
