Fair trade coffee

We've been buying fair trade coffee at Trader Joe's because it is convenient and reasonably priced, but no matter where the beans are from, the roast is the same. I'd like to buy fair trade whole beans that are roasted to take advantage of the particular type of coffee. Our favorite coffee right now is Sumatra.

  1. Intelli carries plenty of FT coffee.

    1. Not sure where you are, but Kéan Coffee in Tustin and Newport Beach has a large number of fair-trade single-origin beans, and Martin Diedrich is a master roaster.
