WE ONLY USE FAIR - TRADE BEANS
Actually, our roaster pays higher than fair-trade prices for the beans we use. Coffee comes from all over the world, and farmers are often exploited and paid lower prices for their beans. Klatch Coffee our roaster, was one of the pioneers of the fair-trade movement in coffee, in a process they call "direct trade." Klatch has representatives in the countries that supply green coffee to them 12 months out of the year. Based in Los Angeles CA, Klatch is a family-run company that has won countless awards, including the "Micro Roaster of the Year" & "Best Espresso in the World" at Tokyo WBC in 2007. Fallbrook Coffee Company offers a wide variety of whole bean varieties from Klatch, and is currently using their "World's Best Espresso" for our espresso drinks.
