Fair Trade Coffee, or not; is it important? Why should we even care? Is it important? There’s a lot of hype going around about Fair Trade coffee, what’s good, what’s not, and why. If you really enjoy a good cup o’ joe, and you want to be fair to those that sweat bullets to get the beans to the roaster then you may want to read an article on http://www.globalexchange.org/fairtrade/campaigns/coffee this page is more than a cup runneth over with details about Fair Trade coffee and other Fair Trade commodities. Not only does Global Exchange helps us understand a bit more about the labor issues and the environmental issues swirling from planting to harvesting coffee, but it shines a light on history as we consider the days of tenant farmers trying to make a living while being held back by the landowners.
I am a frugal person by nature, but I am also a believer that a workman is worthy of his wages; and do not want to see people taken advantage of for the prosperity of others and especially so we can have a decent cup of coffee.
You can get your Fair Trade coffee from most anywhere these days, not just your local yuppie coffee shop, but you can get it at your local grocery stores too. Investigate the company that produces your coffee of choice and make sure that the company is reputable.
One such company is Tropical Traditions; you can order your coffee along with Coconut Oil and many other items.
