Fair Trade Friends: Cafe Conciencia

Written by Cafe Campesino on Dec 1, 2005 in Fair Trade Friends, NEWSLETTER |

Café Conciencia
A Fair Trade Organic Coffee and Ecotourism Project

Café Conciencia (coffee with a conscience) is dedicated to developing successful small businesses—particularly coffee roasting and ecotourism—that provide alternative sources of income for struggling worker-owned agricultural cooperatives in Guatemala so that they can achieve decent, dignified, and sustainable standards of housing, health, and education.

Help Café Conciencia make good on the promise of Fair Trade by becoming a Founding Annual Sustainer for as little as $25/year. Your contribution will go directly toward the development of roasted coffee and ecotourism projects in Fair Trade producer communities, which ultimately means new sources of income for producers and a new way for supporters of Fair Trade to get more involved with Fair Trade at the grassroots level.

Café Conciencia Annual Sustainer Levels include:
$1,000 – Plus Social Justice Champion
$500 – Solidarity Builder
$250 – Community Advocate
$100 – Fair Trader
$25 – Coffee Lover

Tax-deductible donations can be made by credit card online at www.cafeconciencia.org or by check via their 501c3 fiscal sponsor, Yemaya, at the following address (please write Café Conciencia in the memo line):
