What does fair trade mean?

In the simplest terms, it is an innovative approach to the traditional coffee supply chain aimed at returning a greater share of profit to the grower.  Fair Trade certification guarantees that coffee producers receive a fair price for the coffee and in turn have opportunities to invest in education, housing and community infrastructure.  By displaying the Fair Trade Emblem, 2% is paid directly to the organization. Our roaster continues to source top-quality beans that meet these standards “with an eye towards widening our selection of Fair Trade certified coffees.”
