Did you know that coffee is one of the largest trades with high demand in the food and beverage industry? It’s also one of the worst for intense labour and unhealthy working conditions for farmers and even children. Fair trade means that the commodities and producers of products are paid fair wages, given proper living and working conditions, and treated as human beings. It also ensures the environment is sustainable, which is great for future generations.
Well here at Ethical Trading Group we love our fair trade coffee! And let’s just get things straight: organic, fair trade coffee just tastes better in every way. It’s less bitter and the true flavours of where the coffee beans originated from come through in the most exquisite way. Experiencing organic, fair trade coffee from different parts of the world is one of the most delicious and enjoyable cultural experiences you could have. So this week, we thought we’d share with you some of our staff’s most memorable and cherished coffee moments from around the globe (and in some instances, just in their own backyard!).
So tell us, what are your favourite coffee moments? Who do you share them with? Share the love, tag a friend, take a snap and post your thoughts with the hashtag #specialcoffeemoment.
