Coffees :: Fair Trade
Fair Trade helps others to help themselves. It is a positive way for consumers to help Third World farmers improve their standards of living. Fair Trade certification means that people are paid a fair wage for their product, have safe and humane working conditions, adequate housing and medical care. It means freedom for workers to organize, the absense of forced labor and child labor abuses and enviornmentally friendly farming practices. This model is a growing trend in Third World countrys, where they are helping to improve the enviornment.
Swiss Water Process:
Swiss-Water Process takes place in a decaffeination plant in Vancouver, B.C., using water and activated charcoal. Activated carbon is made by purified coal, treating it in a natural gas furnace that produces granules of charcoal containing millions of pores, thus activated charcoal. And Finally - The filtered water, containing flavor components, is hydrated back into beans, resulting in 99% caffeine-free green coffee beans.
Note: The decaffeination process turns the unroasted beans a dark brown color so whether roasted light or dark, the resulting color will always look dark. It is the most expensive method of decaffeination but is also considered a natural method since it uses no chemicals.
