We know it's important to you where your coffee is from. This is why we made it a priority to source our coffee responsibly, giving you options when you buy. It is uncommon for a small roastery of our size to be licensed, but we felt it was an important step of accountability to our customers. You'll see clearly on our coffee selections which ones are Fairtrade certified.
FAIRNESS FOR FARMERS
By choosing Fairtrade coffee you ensure farmers get a fair price for their beans and an additional premium to invest in schools, and reforestation and agricultural improvements, for example. This means that they can improve their working, social and community lives and protect the environment they live in. And with Fairtrade Canada, every bean can be traced back to the farmers’ cooperative. So you get a great cup of coffee that you know has adhered to high ethical standards, and one that has directly benefited the farmer who produced it.
When you see a product with the Fairtrade seal, you can be sure it meets rigorous social, environmental, and economic standards. That means:
- Safe working conditions
- Environmental protection
- Sustainable livelihoods
- Community Development Funds
