Did you know that a cup of coffee can fight poverty? Fair Trade coffee such as those sold by Jummy Java provide support to small coffee producers around the world. Fair Trade coffees guarantee a minimum price to smaller, rural-based farmers and provide them with direct links to a variety of importers. This creates sustainability, allows these farmers to earn better incomes, and to invest in their property, thereby continually maintaining quality over their product.
Pound for pound, Fair Trade coffees pay farmers better than the average market pricing, which as of 2009 was $1.25, with Fair Trade coffees offering those farmers $1.69 per pound.
What difference does it make?
Fair Trade coffee producers and suppliers focus on economic, environmental, and social development of independent farmers, many of whom produce coffee for major coffee brands and suppliers throughout the US.
We, in Jummy Java support these farmers through their premium gourmet coffee options. Some of our popular Organic Fair Trade, and Fair Trade coffees include:
