Read the story behind it...
Why buying Traidcraft decaff matters.
Traidcraft coffee is different because they are committed to working with the most marginalised, smaller-scale producers.
This is one of the poorest producer groups Traidcraft has ever worked with, living a hard life in an area with little infrastructure, and small earnings from their crops. They literally had to climb a mountain just to trade with the farmers who grow this great-tasting coffee in a remote part of Guatemala -- but that’s nothing compared to what the mountain producers have to climb to scrape the most basic living from coffee and honey on the side of a volcano.
Traidcraft has been working with CIPAC, (their coffee supplier in Guatemala) since 2007, helping them to develop their products and open up new markets. Traidcraft staff regularly pays them visits, and they know their people by name. They've helped them to get Fairtrade certification and to develop their product quality, as well as arranging for their coffee to be packed in-country to provide extra income for local communities.
This is the way Traidcraft has supported hundreds of thousands of farmers across the developing world for more than 30 years. They are there to catch their people if they fall, and they're in it for the long haul -- to develop sustainable businesses that will last.
More Than Just Coffee.
Traidcraft's NEW Decaff coffee has arrived
and is now available to buy from
Beacon Books and Kingdom Krafts!
We also provide free individual sachets next to the till so you can taste-test this new decaff for yourself!
Traidcraft’s new coffee has a smooth, intense taste, and is made from 100% high grown Arabica beans.
The Mountain Water Process removes caffeine naturally, and unlike the chemical processes used in other decaff coffees, this one actually enhances the taste of the coffee!
The Expert's View:
"We find the coffee to have medium body, good acidity (not too much!) good flavour and good mouthfeel. There is no way one can tell it is decaffeinated as we cupped against three other non decaf samples and it came out on top!" ~ Ian Breminer, Managing Director, Complete Coffee Ltd
