Coffee is enjoyed every day, but it’s especially celebrated on National Coffee Day (September 29)! According to the National Coffee Association, the average American drinks 3.1 cups of coffee a day— that’s nearly 80 gallons of coffee per year!

Fair Trade Berries

Because coffee is such an integral part of our customer’s lives, we believe in responsibly sourcing the coffee we sell in our stores. Many small-scale coffee farmers live in remote regions that have limited access to opportunities for themselves and their families, making them more vulnerable to middlemen who buy their coffee at a fraction of the value. Fair Trade Certified™products are a great way for consumers to help eliminate exploitation and protect fundamental human rights.

The Fair Trade premium goes into a communal fund for thousands of workers and farmers to use to improve their social, economic and environmental conditions.

Our O Organics® Fair Trade Certified™ coffee empowers farmers to lead sustainable lives by providing them with fair market prices and safe working conditions, as well as additional premiums to invest in community projects. Since 2013, the sale of O Organics coffee has generated over $1 million in premiums that supported community development.
