We source from Fair-trade coffee cooperatives located in Peru, Honduras, Sumatra and Ethiopia that are made up from multiple small coffee farmers who collectively process and market their coffee beans. This ensures a farmer a minimum price for their coffee crop as well as extra premiums paid for the Fair-trade product. The premiums are invested back into democratically agreed initiatives by the co-operative. At Esquires, we pride ourselves on our commitment to the Fair-trade movement and to using only 100% Organic coffee beans to ensure our customers the best cup there is out there. So, let’s drink good coffee and do good for the planet.
