Buying quality coffee beans has an important trickle-down effect. Coffee growing regions that improve their growing and processing practices receive a higher price for their coffees. When you pay $15 or $20 for a bag of quality coffee, the coffee farmers who grow those beans experience an increase in income.
Maybe you love your bag of Ethiopian blend, or perhaps you prefer the Brazilian dark roast. Buying them from Blackwoods Coffee, having them delivered, takes less effort than looking for a big brand label on your bag of grocery store coffee.
You have an amazing opportunity to do good. The simple act of buying a pound of coffee beans to enjoy at home gives us real opportunities to improve the lives of poor coffee farmers in developing countries.
There is no other product we buy, so frequently, that can be used as a tool of positive change. Every remarkable cup of coffee we drink gives the world a little nudge, and can improve the lives of people thousands of miles away from where we live. Whenever you can, buy our quality coffee beans. Every time you do, you’ll be helping a small coffee farmer, his family and his community.
