A Fair Trade Wish List

From stocking stuffers to show stoppers, Green Mountain Coffee and Keurig have gifts to please every coffee lover on your holiday list.

To kick off the season, Green Mountain Coffee is offering four Limited Edition Seasonal Coffees. Organic Joyful Season Blend, Holiday Blend, Spicy Eggnog, and Gingerbread are all created to complement the special foods and festivities of this time of year. All four coffees are Fair Trade Certified which means small-scale farmers were paid a fair price for their beans. That makes them an especially appropriate way to celebrate the season. These coffees are available on the company’s Web site and in supermarkets nationwide until December 26.

For coffee lovers who crave convenience, the new Keurig B30 Mini Brewer is just right. Keurig Single-Cup Brewers create a great cup of coffee at the touch of a button. There’s no grinding, measuring, or mess. The newest and smallest Keurig Brewer easily fits into a private office, vacation retreat, master suite, or dorm room. The Mini Brewer sells for $79.95 on line and at retailers nationwide.

For people who want to feel good about great taste, there’s the Better World Gift Bag. The reusable, eco-friendly tote overflows with Fair Trade Certified coffee, tea, and chocolate. A bag of Tanzanian Gombe Reserve coffee is included to help protect chimp habitat, and a coupon for a pint of Ben & Jerry’s tops it all off: java, justice and joy! The Better World Gift Bag is available for $56.95 at and in the Company’s catalog.

If you want to be remembered all year long, a Coffee-of-the-Month Tour may help. Each month, the lucky recipient will receive two bags or two K-Cup boxes of delicious, freshly-roasted coffees. Tours are available through the Company’s web site in 6- or 12-month programs, and feature Signature, Flavored, or Fair Trade Certified coffees.
