What is fairtrade coffee?
Fairtrade coffee is coffee that has been sourced and purchased directly from the grower.
The purchase price is often higher than that of regular coffee, as there is a premium added that goes towards planning for sustainable development. The money doesn’t pass through a third-party distributor or supplier, but goes straight back into the coffee co-op, allowing coffee growers to not only make a profit, but also to improve their facilities to better business in the long run. Fairtrade ensures that the money paid to those that have grown the coffee equals a fair, living wage, and that no child or forced labour was used at any point in the growing process.
Why buy fairtrade coffee?
There are many reasons it makes sense to invest in fairtrade coffee.
Firstly, the quality of the coffee is exceptional. Many co-ops practice environmentally-friendly growing techniques that limit the use of agrochemicals and other harmful additives, thus improving and increasing the overall flavor. As the coffee is sourced from local communities around the world, there is also a great deal of variety to enjoy. You can sample sensational blends that have been cultivated in a variety of different soil and temperature conditions. Fairtrade Coffee is a fair and affordable option for everyone involved. You get fantastic, flavourful coffee that has been grown without harmful pesticides, the local communities in which it was grown benefit from the profits brought in by the co-op, and coffee farmers receive a living wage.
