This week, founder Lisa Hendey is visiting Colombia as part of a media delegation with Catholic Relief Services. While there, she will learn about “selecting coffee which is sustainably produced and more importantly which enhances the lives of the families who grow and produce it.” One way to do just that is to look for Fair Trade/Equal Exchange coffee

Are you mindful about the way you select the coffee that wakes you up each morning? Do you purchase Fair Trade products?

Please share your answers and experiences in the comment box below.
