Fair Trade Coffee Benefits Communities and the Environment

certified-fair-trade-coffee-brands

There’s nothing quite like the aroma and flavor of a freshly brewed cup of joe in the morning… or any time of day, really. It’s just the perfect pick-me-up you need to chase away your drowsiness, and kick yourself into high gear.

But do you know what’s even better than enjoying a great cup of coffee? The feeling you’ll get when you know that the java you’re savoring has been produced in accordance with fair trade coffee practices.

By now, you’ve probably seen plenty of purveyors advertising fair trade coffee. But what does the fair trade certification mean, and what are the benefits of filling your cup with beans procured by fair trade brands?

Fair Trade Means Better Lives for Farmers

Fair Trade K-Cups

A variety of fair trade coffee and K-Cups are available online.

Let’s hear it for coffee farmers! In many parts of the world, we can’t grow our own beans. Fortunately, there are coffee farmers in parts of the world where coffee beans will grow, and we’re able to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

In a nutshell, whenever you buy fair trade certified coffee, you’ll be able to rest assured that the farmers who grew your beans received a fair price for their products.

Fair Trade Coffee Encourages Organic Agriculture

Nearly 85% of the beans sold under the fair trade coffee label means that it’s organic. That’s because farmers are paid a premium for growing organic coffee beans. In purchasing fair trade coffee, you’re encouraging farmers to grow using sustainable methods, so you’re also benefiting the environment, and safeguarding that wonderful coffee-growing land for the java junkies of the future.

Fair Trade Builds Community

A portion of the proceeds from fair trade certified beans is earmarked for community development projects for the communities in which the coffee is grown. That means better schools, housing, healthcare, and education for the local residents.

Fair Trade Coffee Tastes Better

We’ve all had bad coffee at one time or another, and it’s a real letdown when you’re used to the good stuff. Mass-produced coffee may be less expensive, but you can often taste the difference, because the produce is not of the same quality. In contrast, fair-trade beans are generally rich, aromatic, flavorful, and robust, because they’re patiently grown in rich soils, and without all the toxic chemicals.

Where is coffee grown?

Fair Trade Coffee Is Better for Workers, Too

In order to become fair trade certified, farms have to meet certain labor criteria. They’re not permitted to use child labor, and they’re required to provide safe working conditions.

Fair Trade Cuts Out the Middleman

Fair trade importers purchase coffee directly from producer groups. Without middlemen taking a substantial portion of their profits, they’re better able to compete in the global market.

Go Fair Trade!

If you haven’t tried fair trade-certified coffee yet, then it’s high time you did. You’ll be impressed with the quality of the product, and you’ll feel good about drinking your favorite beverage.

Treating Mom Like the Queen She Is

mothers-day-recipes-sweet-treats

Mothers deserve to be treated wonderfully throughout the year, but on Mother’s Day, it’s nice for them to be able to enjoy a special treat. We can’t think of very many things that would be more special for the holiday than to wake up to a sweet morning treat, and a yummy coffee drink (of course, waking up to the company of loved ones beats most anything)!

So we’ve prepared some Mother’s Day treats and Mother’s Day drink recipes that you can easily whip up for your wife, mom, or even yourself.

Make these sweets and drinks to linger over at home, or bring them with you to a Mother’s Day brunch. They’re quick and affordable to prepare, and they’re super delicious whether you indulge in them warm or a bit after you’ve made them – for instance, if you’re joining family or friends at a Mother’s Day potluck.

Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

Ingredients
For the crumb topping and swirl
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup organic sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
1/4 cup pure coconut oil

For the cake
3/4 cup non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil, plus two tablespoons for greasing
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1-1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 8×8-inch baking pan with coconut oil. Set aside.
2. Mix the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar together in a small cup. Set aside to curdle.
3. Make topping and cinnamon swirl by combining flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Stir in coconut oil with a fork. Using your fork, or your fingers, work topping ingredients together until the mixture resembles large crumbs. Set aside.
4. Prepare your cake by beating milk mixture, sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat until well incorporated, but do not over-mix.
5. Pour cake batter into greased pan. Sprinkle a full handful of topping mixture onto cake batter. Swirl into batter with a knife until well incorporated.
6. Spread rest of topping onto the top of cake batter until all batter is covered. Lightly press topping down into batter.
7. Bake for 25 minutes, checking to see if cake is done. If a knife inserted into batter comes out clean, remove cake. If not, cook for five additional minutes.
8. Remove cake from oven when cooked, allow to cool for 10 minutes, and cut into 8 squares. Enjoy!
(makes 8 servings)
**Note – Variations of this Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake can include swirling raspberry jam into the batter instead of the topping mix, or using brewed coffee as a liquid instead of the non-dairy milk.

To go with your Mother’s Day Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake, prepare this sweet and rich Caramel Latte!

Ingredients
For caramel sauce
6 medjool dates (pitted)
3/4 cup hot water
4 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For latte
1 cup non-dairy milk (organic soy milk or full-fat coconut milk tastes best)
2 cups brewed espresso

Method
1. Prepare caramel sauce by soaking dates in 3/4 cup hot water for 10 minutes. Add dates, water, 4 tablespoons coconut milk, and vanilla to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
2. Froth non-dairy milk with a cappuccino frother that has a hot steam function, or heat milk in a pan and whisk until frothy. While you are frothing, brew 2 cups of espresso.
3. Pour espresso into two latte mugs. Top with frothed non-dairy milk. Drizzle prepared caramel on top. Sweeten, if desired, and enjoy!
(serves 2)

*Note – Variations on this Caramel Latte can include a Salted Caramel Latte with sea salt sprinkled on top, or a Mocha Latte by adding 1 tablespoon of cacao powder to both the caramel sauce and the non-dairy milk.

If you’re not going to drink your Caramel Latte right away, you can also pour it into a thermos and serve it over ice when you’re ready. Enjoy these sweets and coffee drinks, and happy Mother’s Day!

Love Coconut? Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee Is Sure to Delight

It’s back for the season! Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee.

Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee from Green Mountain Coffee

What Is Fair Trade Coffee and Why Should You Drink It?

Buy Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee at CoffeeForLessIn addition to its great, tropical coconut taste, one of the things that may appeal to many coffee drinkers is that Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Island Coconut coffee is certified made under fair trade practices. What does this mean for you as a coffee drinker?

Fair trade certification is a product certification that indicates a product is developed and sold under fair trading practices. The fair trade certification is typically granted by one of four international fair trade networks (the Fairtrade Labeling Organization International, the World Fair Trade Organization, the Network of European World Shops, or the European Fair Trade Organization).

Most certified fair trade products feature the FLO International’s “International Fair Trade certification” mark. Products reviewed for fair trade certification are not limited to coffee, either – cotton, fruit juices, tea, vegetables, and cane sugar are some of the other products that can be certified fair trade.

So what exactly does fair trade certification mean? It means the coffee is produced and distributed according to established fair trade standards. For importers, that means promising to pay a minimum fair price to the exporting organization. For exporters, it means working with approved fair trade farming cooperatives, where any surplus on costs of fair trade membership goes to social projects organized by the exporting cooperative.

Drink and Enjoy Green Mountain K-Cup Fair Trade Coffee

Drinking fair trade coffee is a great way to show that you care about fair farming practices globally, and that you care about the environment while enjoying the coffee that you love. With K-cups, you don’t have to make a huge commitment to Island Coconut Coffee. Get as many pods as you want and mix it in with your regular rotation of K-cup coffee pod flavors. Pull it out when you’re looking for a special treat, a magical little getaway from your regular coffee schedule.

When you look at global coffee consumption trends, Canada scores third in terms of who’s drinking the most coffee worldwide. In fact, according to CBC Business news, “out of 80 countries, Canada ranked No. 1 in 2015 when tallying up how many litres of coffee per capita were gulped down at food service joints like cafes.”
