Last year, my husband and I went to Guatemala to to see my father-in-law's beautiful orphanage called The James Project.
It was such a wonderful trip, especially to see all the children so happy, full of life, laughter and fun despite all of their tragic stories before they came to the orphanage. But God is doing such a transforming work for each of their little lives, praise God!
Long story short, my father-in-law, Dan Loney is his name, also has been connected to this amazing organic coffee grower in Guatemala for some time... And I must say it is the BEST, most bold, beautiful coffee I have EVER tried; And that is quite a statement because I must admit, I am a coffee snob, but I am proud of it, and here is why you should be too!
Fair-Trade is what you want to look for first when buying any cup of coffee. Fair-Trade is a way of purchasing and selling products that makes sure that the workers who produce the goods are paid a fair price.
This brings such goodness to those who lack resources and opportunities to make money as we do in North America. Fair-Trade gives them a much better standard of living, especially for the poorer developing countries!
1 Coffee is one of the most sprayed crops in all the world, none organic coffee is loaded with nasty pesticides, herbicides, and toxins.
2 Most coffee is sadly produced by slaves, people living off only $1.00 a day, and these coffee farms are usually low quality, contaminated with mold, taste horrible,but the worst part is that the growers are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer.
3 When you buy high quality, Fair-Trade coffee you are making the world a better place, a place where God would be delighted, the workers are being paid far, you are healthier with none toxic coffee and everyone wins in the end
So yes, I am a HUGE coffee drinker, and I believe it pares so beautifully in deserts, or just to have a rich bold dark roasted cup of coffee with a Keto Cookie, or even better the traditional Coffee & Cake Time.
Okay, hopefully, I convinced you to support organic Fair-Trade coffee companies ;)
Bakerlita is importing Guatemala's, organic, mold-free coffee right from their gorgeous green rainforest.
Bakerlita supports a medium-sized family operated coffee business located southeast corner of Guatemala near a small volcano called Moyuta.
The small farm grows, processes, roasts, and exports the highest-quality, organic & mould-free coffee worldwide since 1992.
Bakerlita believes it is more blessed to GIVE than to receive; For every bag of Black Beauty’s, organic coffee sold 10% of the proceeds are used to sponsor Guatemalan orphans in The James Project. Brew a cup of the best Fair Trade organic coffee to bless those who are in need.
