Several years ago, I started researching “fair trade” chocolate and coffee. At that time, our family made the decision to only purchase these optional products (although whether chocolate and coffee are really optional is up for debate, I know) from fair trade companies since conventional chocolate actually comes from child slave labor — let’s pause there for a second and let that sink in — and conventionally sold coffee takes advantage of poor farmers in some of the poorest nations in the world in order to increase profit margin.
And that’s where Phoenix Community Coffee comes in.
They purchase all of their coffee direct from the coffee farm at a price substantially more than the “fair-trade” minimum. Purchasing direct ensures maximum compensation to the farmers and their workers, resulting in daily wages over 300% more than other farms.
On the front end, each bag of Phoenix Community Coffee sold also resources domestic relief projects such as ending the commercial exploitation of children, ending homelessness, restoring abuse victims, supporting single mothers, and much more. And that’s what they call The Cycle of Relief.
But here’s what I really love. They have a simple motto: “No cause is worth drinking a bad cup of coffee.”
To keep people coming back, they’re committed to selling high-quality, delicious coffee! They start with 100% Arabica coffee, grown and rated as specialty coffee, from a single source. Then they roast the coffee beans fresh in their facility, using a micro-roast system to ensure the quality of each batch.
And with a variety of specialty coffees, you’re sure to find one you love!
