Are there any coffee lovers out there? Have you ever tried Green Mountain Coffee? They have excellent coffee! For this review I received 1 box of Green Mountain Coffee Colombian Trade Select and 1 variety box, that had Vermont Country, Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve, Colombian Trade Select and Our Blend in it from BzzAgent. I also received 10 $1.00 coupons for Green Mountain Coffee to give out to friends and family in my Bzz kit. I had guest over and served coffee, the Green Mountain Coffee was a big hit. My guests love it! I would definitely recommend Green Mountain Coffee.
About the Colombian Fair Trade SelectTheir source coffees for their Colombian Fair Trade Select from cooperatives high in the mountains of Southwestern Colombia. Prominent among these is the Cooperative Association of Southern Cauca (COSURCA).
As if growing exceptional coffee weren’t challenge enough, farmer members of COSURCA have faced a number of threats to their livelihood, such as the ever-present threat from armed extremist groups who would have their land for illegal coca and poppy production. Even in the face of such opposition, COSURCA farmers have eradicated more than 500 acres of coca production, destroyed 17,000 coca plants, and ended cultivation of illegal crops on another 1800 acres... steps that were possible only with the additional revenue that Fair Trade coffee sales provided.
Additionally, COSURCA members are:
Protecting the environment. Organic coffee production is a 100-year tradition in the Cauca region. Today that tradition is augmented with technical training in organic agriculture and ecologically-friendly farming methods.
Establishing food security. Cooperative funds have made it possible to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables for home consumption.
Developing organic composting programs, reducing waste and generating all-organic fertilizer.
