Coffee is one of the most valuable primary products in world trade (it is the second most traded commodity after oil!!) and its cultivation, processing and trading provide employment for hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Coffee production and export is also crucial to the economies of several countries in the South, where the cultivation of coffee usually accounts for the majority of foreign exchange earnings.

The global market for coffee has been often characterised by extreme price volatility and over-production. Fairtrade certification allows small-scale coffee farmers to not only get a fair price for their coffee beans, but to also earn a Fairtrade Development Premium of US$0,20/pound of green coffee sold that they can invest in their business and community.

Starting out with few small hip roasteries, Fairtrade coffee is now becoming a trend in South Africa. The range of Fairtrade coffees available now includes not only filter coffee, but a wide range of espresso blends, instant coffees and capsules for coffee machines.
