Introduction: Out of the Darkness, into the Light

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jun 1, 2003 in Introduction, NEWSLETTER |

We’ve been thinking a lot lately about the power of Fair Trade to change people’s lives. For the campesinos of Guatemala’s APECAFORMM cooperative, repressed during the country’s long civil war, gaining Fair Trade certification has given them the economic means to retain their land, feed their families a more healthful diet and send their children to school.

In this month’s issue of Fair Grounds, we explore the history of Guatemala, birthplace of the great Mayan civilization and home to our partners APECAFORMM, Manos Campesinas and some of the finest coffee in the world. We’ve also got a staff update, a customer profile, a roundup of our upcoming activities, a yummy recipe, a Dr. Coffee Q&A plus a new trivia question. Settle back and enjoy (with your favorite beverage, of course!).
