Bzz..Green Mountain Coffee

As many of your know, I am a coffee LOVER (much to my husband's chagrin)...I am always trying out new coffees and flavors.  Look at my pantry and you'll notice that I have more coffee than food (not really, but it seems that way).

So in order for me to recommend this coffee (or not), I had to educate myself first.  Why does it matter if the company is "fair trade certified" or not?  Well, here are a few reasons, fair trade: 
  • Helps farmers get a fair price for their beans
  • Improves conditions for its workers
  • Helps protect the environment
  • Supports community development with projects resulting in new schools, roads, health clinics and safer drinking water.
  • In the end, it gives us the consumer, a better cup of coffee all around.
