As many of you know, we are Mississippi’s only Fair Trade Certified Roaster & work to source high quality Fair Trade Coffees when they are available. Quality is key. Regardless of certification, if the coffee doesn’t score well, we do not buy it.Typically I get 1-2 lots of FTO coffees that actually get through the initial cupping phase for a 2nd consideration. This year I was delighted to see 5+ coffees scored exceptionally well. This was a huge improvement compared to last year. I haven’t made a final selection on these coffees but wanted to share our current findings. Regardless, 2012 is a great year for Fair Trade Coffees in our opinion. Be blessed.
