According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Fair Trade can be defined as: “a way of buying and selling products that makes certain that the people who produce the goods receive a fair price.”

Naturally, we are passionate about coffee, but that goes hand in hand with caring about how and most importantly, who nurtures the beans to become the delectable flavour bursts that they are. In order to get the quality of coffee that we feel that you deserve, we ensure that our beans are grown in Fair Trade communities and that we play our part towards improving working conditions and implementing future initiatives to further the investment in growing coffee in that area.

Most Fair Trade products must come from small-scale farmers and as such, when you buy coffee beans online from Bun Coffee, you are putting money directly into the pockets of a farming family. We have searched high and low for the world’s best coffees and in them, you can taste the love that hasn’t just permeated into the roasting process, but into the growing process too.

What do We mean by Fairtrade Coffee?

You’ve probably seen the word ‘Fairtrade’ bandied about but do you know what it means? In terms of our coffee, it means that we know exactly where our beans have been sourced and how the farmers that grow the beans profit from this. To be a Fairtrade farmer means that they will receive a guaranteed minimum price for their beans, which in turn means a steadier income and a much more secure future for them and their families.

In addition, 25% of the Fairtrade premium is invested back into the crops to ensure that the quality is always as high as possible. This means better and more profitable harvests and a better cup of coffee for you.

Why Choose Fair Trade Coffee?

As an Australian run business, we are passionate about supporting our local farmers and we do have some local Australian-grown coffee beans in our shop. Nearly 8 out of 10 Australians drink at least a single cup of coffee a day, yet, as a country, we aren’t famous for our coffee production. This means that we have to import high-quality coffee to keep up with the growing demand.

Most coffee is grown in developing countries and that’s why it’s essential to have an emphasis on the traceability of where coffee comes from. At Bun Coffee, our premium beans are sourced from all over the world, in places such as Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia and Honduras. By buying your fair trade coffee online through us, you’re helping to ensure that local farmers and communities a fair wage and that we can continue to support community upliftment projects on plantations and farms.

Transparency is key in any business and even more so when importing and we have always been keen to share our coffee origins with other coffee lovers in Australia.

We also know that we’re supporting gender equality as a percentage of the Fairtrade premium is used to promote gender equality training and encourage and empower women to become involved in coffee co-operatives. By buying your coffee from fair trade coffee shops, such as Bun Coffee, you’re helping to support all these causes.
