'at home' - this is what I use
I must admit, I'm a more than a little bit passionate about my morning cuppa. Fairtrade coffee ensures that coffee growers receive a guaranteed above market price for their beans, and this has flow on effects for the whole community, ensuring better living conditions. Unfortunately slavery, and human trafficking is still rife...drinking fairtrade coffee, and choosing fairtrade products, as much as we can, ensures a louder voice against the exploitation of middle men. Coffee is the second pesticided crop in the world, and fairtrade beans come from farms which have better environmental standards, often organic. Better for them, and better for us...makes for a less bitter cup, don't you think?
You can buy your fairtrade coffee from major supermarkets now, and many cafes. You can also buy online from Jasper Coffee.
