When I got the email asking me if I wanted to review some coffee.. I didn’t even have to think twice.
Coffee and Chocolate are usually an automatic YES from me.
But than I researched a little about where this coffee was coming from and I was even MORE excited to be trying it out.
Equal Exchange is a Fair Trade Co-op that was started in 1986 in with an idea: what if food could be traded in a way that is honest and fair, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers? What if trade supported family farms that use organic methods, rather than industrialized agribusinesses that rely on harmful chemicals?
Today, Equal Exchange continues to find new and powerful ways to build a better food system. Our products now include fairly traded and organic coffee, tea, chocolate and snacks from farmers all over the world, including here in the United States.
What a great idea! I love it when people take a passion they have and turn it into something that isn’t based on making them richer, but enriching others.
I was sent two packages of coffee– which are VERY cool looking.
I quickly busted open the Organic Mind, Body & Soul pack – it has ‘notes of chocolate’ in it.. so of COURSE I would open that one first.
SMOOTH and Yummylicious!
It was me, my bible, my front porch and a DELICIOUS cup of Equal Exchange coffee this morning.
The second package I received was the Organic French Roast. It smells DIVINE and I’m looking forward to sharing with my bible study ladies this week.
