At Bun Coffee, we are proud to be one of Australia’s premium Fair Trade coffee suppliers, but what exactly does that all mean? Well, it means that you can enjoy your sumptuous cup of coffee knowing that through us, you have provided a fair income for farmers in developing countries.
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 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.
As an Australian run business, we are passionate about supporting our local farmers and we do have some local Australian-made 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.
