This month I received a box of Fair Trade Organic Sumatran Reserve Extra Bold K-Cups, a box of Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-Cups, and a box of Colombian Fair Trade Reserve K-Cups as a part of my participation in the Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup Ambassador program. I love my monthly mailings, we get to try a ton of fun coffee!
I love Pumpkin Spice coffee all year round, it reminds me of crisp and clean days in the fall and I love it! My husband really liked the extra bold roast, he said it was super strong and dark and he loved the jolt it gave him in the mornings! He would prefer the extra bold with some pumpkin spice creamer rather than pumpkin spice coffee but to each his own, right? The Colombian was a much lighter roast and more my style. I always feel better buying fair trade coffee, love what it stands for!
From Green Mountain Coffee:
Happy October and National Fair Trade Month! Did you know that for more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee® has been a leader in the fair trade movement, providing a better cup of coffee to consumers and a better quality of life for coffee farmers?
Fair Trade means coffee farmers get a fair price for their beans they grow. That means they can invest in crops, their communities, and their futures.
To help spread the word about Fair Trade, Green Mountain Coffee and acclaimed musicians Grace Potter and Michael Franti are celebrating in a big way 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. As part of the campaign, Grace and Michael were invited to Colombia and Sumatra respectively, to get a first-hand look at how Fair Trade makes a difference in the lives of coffee farmers – and in the coffee you’re drinking.
You can enter to ein a trip of your own by entering the contest on the Green Mountain Facebook page!
