National Coffee Day: Take 10% Off Fair Trade Coffee & Coffee Mugs
National Coffee Day is this Saturday September 29th! What a day to celebrate the fuel that keeps us all running. I encourage you to celebrate this day with fair trade coffee and make a difference with the coffee you drink! In order to kick off the celebration use the code COFFEEDAY for 10% off any of our coffee products through September 30th!
Our featured fair trade coffee brand Singing Rooster is a great place to start if you've been interested in trying fair trade coffee! Singing Rooster's partnering farmers are paid a MINIMUM of $3 per pound which is about twice as much as most farmers receive. Singing Rooster returns another 50 cents after crops sell for continued business development. The remainder of cost pays for export/import, transport to roastery, warehousing, roasting, bagging, shipping. Since Singing Rooster is a non-profit 100% of proceeds from sales back to farmer communities in the form of agricultural, small business management, and entrepreneurial development activities. So far Singing Rooster has been able to put $2 million into the pockets of coffee farmers which is incredible given the per-capita gross national income is less than $800 a year for a farmer family.
