Fair Trade: Our signature coffee is certified Fair Trade, which guarantees that farmers and workers received a fair price for their products. Fair Trade certified growers are farmer-owned cooperatives and small family farms, not corporate agribusinesses. Traditional artisanal methods result in a high-quality product that is worth the slight extra cost. Please visit www.transfairusa.org to learn more about Fair Trade certification.
USDA Organic: Our signature coffee is cultivated, harvested and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Instead, farmers rely on safe techniques like composting, crop rotation, terracing and biological pest control. Our roaster is certified by Natural Food Certifiers. http://nfccertification.com/ Please visit the National Organic Program for details on organic farming. http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/nop
