Camano Island Coffee Roasters:

 

4 Steps to Ethical Coffee:

FIRST: THE BEANS

  • Ethical coffee beans means all Organic – guaranteeing farmer safety.
  • Ethical coffee means Shade-grown — guaranteeing bird habitat and preventing soil erosion.

SECOND: THE PRICE

  • Ethical coffee means buying Fairly Traded – guaranteeing a fair wage.

THIRD: GIVING A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT.

  • Independence – as landowners, farmers can command a better price for their delicious product.
  • Accountability – as landowners, farmers can decide for themselves whether to use dangerous pesticides or harmful agricultural practices like clear-cutting the Rainforest.
  • It Doesn’t End Here! – Agros also helps farmers through education and water treatment programs. Now that’s something to drink to!

FOURTH: THE BIGGEST FACTOR IN GENERATIONAL CHANGE — YOU

That’s right, you are the most important component for lasting change.

  • By supporting only ethical coffee that’s Certified Organic, Shade-Grown, and Fairly Traded, you preserve the environment and prevent human poisoning from pesticides.
  • By supporting ethical coffee that’s fairly traded, you know coffee farmers receive a fair wage — that’s life altering.
  • There’s power in your dollar — Use it! For every Coffee Lover’s Box shipment you receive from CICR, 2% is given back through our nonprofit partners: Agros and Food 4 Farmers.
