Great tasting superior Arabica instant coffee grown in small plots by Colombian cafeteros, and processed in a freeze-drying factory belonging to the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, run by the farmers. The factory has the most advanced technology available, and in a completely natural process uses only water and 100% Colombian arabica beans to make an excellent instant coffee, which is extremely sought-after and sells at a significant price premium on the international coffee market.
Certified Fairtrade, the coffee is bought from the farmers at a guaranteed price that covers the cost of production and ensures a living wage for growers, leaving a great taste in your mouth for many reasons.
The National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia is run by over 500,000 small-scale Colombian coffee farmers, or 'cafeteros'.
Whilst the Colombian Coffee Growers' Federation may look like a competent, alternative government or a big business with social sensibilities, it is still fundamentally an organisation of smallholder farmers. It remains a striking example of what farmers can achieve by working together and should be considered as a model for all aspiring growers' federations.
I can certainly commend the New Internationalist for quick postage & handling - I ordered it on the web and it arrived at my door within 2-3 days, awesome compared to the usual 1 month+ with Amazon!
The New Internationalist magazine is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.
Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
