Cannot Be Unseen: Coffee

coffee

Oh coffee, the sweet dark mistress of the morning. Was that creepy? That felt creepy. We’ll just move along.

Coffee is, without a doubt, one of the highest risk products with regard to exploited and child labor. With that in mind, it’s easy to assume that it would be difficult to find tasty, affordable, fair-trade coffee. Surprisingly, it’s not that difficult!

A solid number of coffee brands have risen to the fair trade challenge. Many are going above and beyond. Here are a few brands to check out:

Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee

Deans Beans

Grounds for Change

Don’t forget to do some research into each brand before ordering. I think you’ll like what you find. Do you have a favorite fair trade coffee company? Share it in the comments!

  1. Thanks for the reminder. Grounds for Change coffee is really good too. Since most of it is “shade” grown (good for animal/bird habitat) is has a much less bitter flavor than a lot of coffees.

    • I love it! It isn’t easy to find that kind of combination – yummy and responsible. Feel free to let me know if you find any other brands that fit well into that category!

  2. You should check out SERRV they are a dedicated fair trade catalog that I try to get my Christmas gifts from as much as I can. They have everything from decor and jewelry to kids toys and food.
