A 2019 Volcafe study showed that over 60% of producers are selling their coffee for less than it costs to produce. This has resulted in increased child-labor, lowered quality of life, and a decrease in the quality of coffee grown. Our farmers are paid a fair price -typically over 50% higher- for the coffee. This allows the farmers to take proper care of their families, their communities, and our coffee. Your purchase of Fair Trade Certified products helps improve lives and protect the environment.
