Introduction: Diggin’ In to Fair Trade

Written by Cafe Campesino on Oct 1, 2007 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

Hot coffee weather has finally made its way down to Americus and it looks like it’s here to stay! We think you’ll agree that temperatures in double, rather than triple, digits — at least until next summer anyway — are worthy of a steaming cup of fairly traded joe. Good timing, too, because in this edition of Fair Grounds we have a lot to cover and a tasty cup of Café Campesino is just the right fuel to get you through it all. Read on for a good hard look at Fair Trade by Bill Harris in his report on our annual Cooperative Coffees meeting in Matagalpa, Nicaragua (from which he, Maty, and Tripp have literally just returned), an e-visit by our good friend Jackie DeCarlo of CRS, who gives us the inside scoop on her recently released book Fair Trade: A Beginner’s Guide, a spotlight on our very good friends at Manna Grocery and Deli in Tuscaloosa, Alabama (who we’ll be teaming up with later this month for their annual Kentuck event in Tuscaloosa!), and a full, exciting calendar of events.
