Coffee Break with a Giveaway!!!


Say no Frankensteined-coffee! Buy Green Mountain’s Fair Trade Certified Coffee.

Am I pitching for this company? Yep, and with good reason. The taste goes without saying is awesome. My personal favorite: Donut Shop. But for a coffee addict like me taste is necessity, so I was relieved and happy to know that behind a great tasting coffee is a community driven company.

Green Mountain Coffee has been supporting Fair Trade for over a decade. They purchase directly from the growers. The idea is to promote and support healthier working conditions. And most importantly Fair Trade Certified bans the use of genetically modified organisms (GMO). 

That means tasting good and doing good for your community go hand-in-hand with Green Mountain Coffee.

I know there a lot of initiatives for going green, but small confession . . . I just can’t get behind all of them. Say plastic wrap, I use that like sunblock on a baby. I slather layers and layers of plastic wrap on food all the time.

Same goes for coffee.

But to lessen the burden of  this addiction on the environment I’m happy that my new supplier is a pioneer in the Fair Trade movement and has the largest selection of Fair Trade Certified™ coffees in the U.S.

I have to admit up until a few weeks ago, I never really knew what Fair Trade meant- Gasp! Shame on me, right? So as my good deed to those not in the know, here are a few quick facts what Fair Trade means:

  • Say no to slave labor: Fair trade allows guaranteed pricing for coffee farmers and local growers. Say no to slave labor.
  • Say yes to being green friendly: The environmental impact of Fair Trade means protecting water resources, restricted use of pesticides and fertilizers, and banned use of genetically modified organisms (GMO). 
  • Say hoo-ray to not being price gauged: Green Mountain’s Coffee Fair Trade products cost the same as non-certified products.

    I love Chocolate Mint coffee- we usually buy whole bean and then grind it for a drip coffeemaker.
