For many years, St. Augustine's was sourcing its coffee from Blue's Java Bar where we had a strong connection with the owner.
Unfortunatly, Blues' shut down for good last year and we are without a coffee source for the church!
As an Anglican diocese, we are committed to using coffee with FairTrade certification. If you don't know, FairTrade certification is only given to companies that commit to fair treatment for its employees. They are visited on a regular basis to ensure these committments are being carried out. (learn more here: https://www.fairtradecertified.org/)
Do you have a good source for FairTrade coffee? (both regular strength and decaf) Please let the office or our new Coffee Hour coordinator know.
