When you think about fair trade, you probably immediately imagine the staples of our movement - bananas, cotton, chocolate, and of course tea and coffee. We've stocked coffee for the past couple of years, usually as a by-product of the cafe we ran for Hay Festival in our old shop up at Hay Castle. We quickly realised that the bags of ground coffee were selling well all year round.
We're now very pleased to be selling a range of Fairtrade coffee from the wonderfully named Grumpy Mule in our new shop on Lion Street. The packaging looks fantastic and the contents match the zingy colours of the bags! We have four blends currently available, from Ethiopia, Sumatra, Bolivia and Colombia. These range from mild and citrusy through to strong and smooth, with each bag graded from 1 to 5 on its "kick."
Sadly we aren't selling these on line yet, but perhaps if there was sufficient demand we could consider it? Let us know what you think!
