PARTNERING WITH A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF FARMERS

IT STARTS WITH THE FARMERS: We first got into Fair Trade based on our respect and admiration for the farmers of the Mut Vitz cooperative (the first cooperative that Larry visited). This led to Larry's Beans™ becoming a founding member of Cooperative Coffees, the first and still the only cooperative of independent coffee roasters in the U.S. importing coffee directly from Fair Trade cooperatives.

Over 70% of the world's coffee comes from small family farmers who don't have trucks to transport their crop and who don't have access to info about its market value.  Even farmers who produce superior coffee get pressured to sell for prices that make it a struggle just to break even. Meanwhile the giant coffee companies that keep driving the prices down rarely ever lower their prices for the consumer. This is why Fair Trade is important.
