It is hard to believe that it’s been 16 years since Katrina. Our hearts go out to those who have been affected by Ida, either as a hurricane or a tropical storm. The least we can do is donate to an organization that is everywhere at once. We chose the American Red Cross because they have established networks across the country. Most know then as running blood donations, but they provide so much more. They provide meals, shelter, relief items, care contact and local volunteers.
The coffee is our Equinox. It’s a balanced coffee that is so good, you’ll want more! This is a crowd pleaser coffee, so share the love!
We will donate $2 from every bag of Ida Relief coffee sold to the American Red Cross.
About Our Coffee
Certified organic coffee is produced according to sustainable practices, without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other harmful agrochemicals. In order for a coffee to be certified organic, the farm must undergo evaluation from an independent certifying agency. The U.S. has its own organic standards, requiring a roasting facility to be annually inspected and certified in order to be labeled ’organic.’
Fair Trade USA enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth. We achieve our mission by certifying and promoting Fair Trade products.
A traditional farming method in which coffee trees are grown alongside other crops under a canopy of taller trees. The mixture of vegetation prevents erosion and protects the coffee from harsh weather. Shade grown farms also provide vital wildlife habitat.
