How Responsible is Your Coffee Bean?

Mmmmmmm Coffee…. it’s very tempting, just saying it…coffee, is very exotic in its self. Thinking of the aroma and the creamy silky texture makes you crave it and once you’ve found your favorite place, ends up becoming and addiction that is fashionably acceptable.Just the slightest whiff of the brew draws you to it and before you know it you’re ordering your favorite cup… latte, cappuccino, flat white & the list goes on and on and on…the most important things you think about is making sure the barrister heard you say, with skim milk or decaf, what else Is there to think about? 

Lately I’ve noticed serving coffee is becoming a very lucrative business, especially with the big franchises opening up to 5 stores in the same suburb! Which I guess is good for the consumer as you’ll always know you’ll get the same quality any where you go. But with big chains come greater demand for the raw product and more risk of exploitation.

Do we really know what we’ve created becoming coffee addicts? 

Visiting this unique establishment dedicated to being socially responsible opened my eyes to the hardships faced by the people and countries that supply our favorite addiction…coffee. 

The Fair Trade Coffee Company is that such establishment. Directly quoting their website The Fair Trade Coffee Company offers coffee and tea free from exploitation. When you visit the Fair Trade Coffee Company, you can be sure that every bean of our coffee is certified fair trade, meaning among other things, that every worker involved in producing your cup is paid a fair wage for their work.’ Who ever thought that in this day and age, exploitation of this kind still existed? I’m happy to see that someone has taken the step to educate us and I for one am happy to spread the word!

Taking a seat at this place is a nice refreshing change. The genuinely friendly staff greets you with a glass of water and is ready to take your order. Today we just ordered our flat whites and checked out the cake display and found a yummo Blueberry Cheesecake beckoning us….
