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 began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.
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 Global Mamas: Global Mamas is a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana, West Africa, supporting the sustainable development of women artisans producing fair trade products
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.
