Recently I received a happy little box in the mail with some Fair Trade Certified Green Mountain Coffee to test and review for free from BzzAgent.
If you’re not familiar with what Fair Trade actually is, as I wasn’t before joining this campaign, it is a movement that allows farms to get a fair price for their beans, which leads to community development projects like new schools, improved roads, and safer drinking water. Basically, by purchasing a Fair Trade Certified item, you are helping coffee-farming communities improve their way of life. Win-Win! To learn some more, please visit: http://www.choosefairtrade.com/
Green Mountain Coffee, Inc., the parent company of Green Mountain Coffee, is actually the largest purchaser of Fair Trade Certified coffee. The flavor that I was able to try is their brand-new Three Continent Blend, which combines the flavors and aromas of South America, Africa, and Asia into one harmonious Extra Bold Blend.
Now, I am the type of person who drinks coffee mostly for the taste. I choose the caffeinated types because I’m a mom of a little boy who gets up far too early for my liking, but still, if it doesn’t taste good, I don’t drink it. I like one that has a Good Taste rather than a *strong* taste and this coffee delivers! I was quite pleasantly surprised that it really does has a distinct taste that isn’t overpowering. I really have enjoyed trying this out!!
(The last picture is me attempting to make myself some coffee on a day I REALLY needed it…and my son doing his best to not let that happen! LOL)
