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.
Love your organisation and your shop, keep up the fab work.
I am really happy with your products and service. In particular "The New Internationalist" is a great resource for our Certificate 1V IN WOMEN'S EDUCATION where we study Global Issues for Women.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the stories of people who are working to build a better planet.
A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
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.
