Is the coffee you drink a fair trade coffee? Fair trade means that coffee famers receive a fair price for the coffee beans they grow, which in turn helps them to re-invest in their crops, communities, and their future.
Green Mountain Coffee has proudly offered a variety of Fair Trade coffee flavors for more than a decade, including my very favorite (and appropriately named), Columbian Fair Trade Select. To help spread the word about Fair Trade, Green Mountain Coffee and acclaimed musicians Grace Potter and Michael Franti are celebrating with “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” – an awareness campaign that celebrates the good vibes of fair trade through free concerts and an opportunity to win a trip to source.
You can follow Grace and Michael’s trips at Facebook.com/GreenMountainCoffee, where you can also enter to win a trip to Costa Rica, an area where Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified Coffee is grown.
As part of the K-Cup Ambassador program, I was sent a variety of fair trade K-Cup packs from Green Mountain Coffee. I received the Columbian Fair Trade, Sumatran Reserve, and a seasonal favorite, Fair Trade Certified Pumpkin Spice. I was extremely excited about this mailer because it contained the Pumpkin Spice! I had never tried this flavor of coffee that I hear everyone raving about this time of year. Now, I can make it in my own Keurig anytime I want at home! My verdict? Add in a couple of sweeteners and it’s sooooooo good!
Now through November 5 at GreenMountainCoffee.com, Fair Trade products are on sale, AND if you use code GMCFTC8162, you can save an additional 10% on all Fair Trade Certified products! Now is the time to stock up on that Fair Trade Certified Pumpkin Spice!
