Keurig Mini Plus Brewing System & Fair Trade Coffee


green mountain coffee

I love my coffee.  I adore my coffee.  I would be lost without my coffee (seriously).  What I love even more is a company that cares, and Green Mountain Coffee is one such company.  Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. was one of the first roasters to sell Fair Trade Certified Coffee, and they are one of the largest purchasers to date!

Why is this such a big deal? Fair Trade means that farmers get a better price for their coffee beans. These farmers can invest in crops and their futures. It also improves working conditions in fair trade communities. This in turn helps with projects such as new roads, schools, health clinics, etc. It also helps with the protection of the environment.

You can learn more about Fair Trade in this video:

I received an assortment of Green Mountain Fair Trade Certified coffees and oh how I enjoyed them!

My mouth watered as I opened the box to discover Colombian Fair Trade Select and Fair Trade Sumatran Reserve and also the limited edition Pumpkin Spice, a yummy seasonal flavor which is also Fair Trade Certified™!  This time of year, I love the flavor of Pumpkin coffee, and it makes me want to snuggle in for the day under a big blanket, all while sipping a steaming mug of heaven (Pumpkin Spice!).  The rich, deep  flavors of the Sumatran Reserve and the Colombian Select were so satisfying – I know that I will be buying these in the future.  I like my coffee strong, and these did not disappoint!

great coffee good vibes pass it on

I also received two very special music CD’s – from Grace Potter and Michael Franti, who are helping to spread the word about Fair Trade. “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” – is an awareness campaign that celebrates the good vibes of fair trade through free concerts as well as an opportunity to win a trip to source. These two musical artists were invited to Colombia and Sumatra where they got a first-hand look at how Fair Trade makes a difference in the lives of coffee farmers… and in the coffee we drink.

This is a really fun and interesting about Grace Potter’s trip to Colombia:

Did you know that you can also shop fair trade and help even further? Now that the holidays are almost here, this is a great way to get your shopping done while also helping the Fair Trade community.
