Coffee

Buying fair trade coffee means fair prices for producers and casting a vote for the ethical treatment of the laborers around the world who are responsible for our daily coffee fix. Because of the extraordinary demand for coffee in the West, the coffee bean industry is one of the largest sites of forced labor and child slavery worldwide. Workers are made to work long hours with little or no pay, and often exposed to dangerous chemical fertilizers and pesticides that have been banned in the US.

Our supplier, Level Ground Trading, improves the lives of disadvantaged producers through trade. They buy coffee beans directly from several countries where fair trade investment has gone towards projects including: capacity building, ecotourism to supplement coffee production, domestic sales of roasted coffee, training in organic farming and educational funds and scholarships.
