Our beans are always 100% Fair Trade because we value and respect the farmers who produce them.
Coffee is a highly volatile commodity, with wide price fluctuations year to year. This is due to coffee production being highly dependent on weather conditions, susceptible to disease and influenced by a range of other factors. Many farmers lack reliable market information, this coupled with often small yields leads to situations of unequal power relations where farms lack bargaining power when engaging in negotiations. Fairtrade helps bring farmers together to strengthen their position and to learn from one another, Globally Fairtrade works with 445 coffee producer organisations representing 810,000 farmers in 30 countries to make sure they are paid fairly for their produce and work.
