Why is our coffee so special?
You are drinking coffee provided by Equal Exchange, an alternative trade coffee roaster who bypasses the conventional market by trading directly with small-scale family farm co-ops. As a result, the farmers obtain higher prices (almost double) for their product. With the increase in equity, the farmers can farm organically. This protects the environment and protects the lives of the farmers who can be poisoned by pesticides. Some co-ops have even funded desperately needed services such as health care, education and transportation. Visit Equal Exchange's website for more information.
