I (Erika) only started drinking coffee about a year ago... and I am sorry to say I am addicted:) Getting up early mornings with the kids for school, especially when it is cold outside, sends me looking for some warm caffeine! Mark actually has a more refined taste in coffee because he drinks it black. I have a little coffee with a lot of cream and sugar:)
So we are always looking for ways to order our addiction while feeling like we are doing something with the money we are drinking down...so we like to order fair trade coffee. What is fair trade coffee? It is coffee which is purchased directly from the growers for a higher price than standard coffee. The purpose of fair trade is to promote healthier working conditions and greater economic incentive for producers.
We recently discovered Just Love Coffee . They not only sell excellent fair trade coffee but work with families that are adopting. They help families raise funds to go toward their adoption. So if you click on the nifty little link to the left:) and purchase some coffee from our "store" we will earn $5 per bag of coffee!! We bought several different kinds of their coffee so far and have really, really enjoyed it. They sell whole bean or already ground and ours came within 4 days of ordering it!
So if you want to try some new coffee, help out some fair trade farmers and help us bring our little girl home...then click and shop please!!! Thank you ahead of time if you decide to grab a cup of java:) They make great gifts too!!
