Fair Trade certification gives farmers a fair price for their beans with a guaranteed minimum, which means they can invest in their crops, their communities, and their future. Fair Trade also lets Green Mountain Coffee and farmers work closely together to bring the best tasting coffee to market.
“Fair Trade means great coffee for you and a better life for farmers.” ~ Kelly Clarkson
Every purchase of Fair Trade coffee you make, helps coffee farmers and their communities by funding education, health care and environmental sustainability. Who’d have guessed one of your favorite daily routines could have such a positive impact on the lives of people worldwide?
The only thing that might be richer than the benefits of purchasing Fair Trade coffee are the flavors. As the largest purchaser of Fair Trade Certified coffee, Green Mountain knows the quality is second to none. That’s why they offer a wide selection of Fair Trade coffees, including brand-new Three Continent Blend, which combines the flavors and aromas of South America, Africa, and Asia into one harmonious Extra Bold Blend. We loved the Three Continent Blend! Talk about robust and rich flavor! No bitter taste here. Even the aroma is different with this coffee. I don't know how to explain the smell, but it makes my kitchen smell like a coffeehouse! If you like a strong cup of coffee, it is just GOOD!
