Fair Trade Month & Green Mountain Coffee

Screen shot 2012-10-03 at 8.35.19 PM

October is Fair Trade Month and for more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee® has been a leader in the fair trade movement, providing a better cup of coffee to consumers and a better quality of life for coffee farmers. Still, only one in three consumers are aware of what fair trade is all about – that a simple purchasing decision can help improve the lives of people around the world

Green Mountain Coffee and acclaimed musicians Grace Potter and Michael Franti are celebrating Fair Trade Month in a big way with “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On” – an awareness campaign that will celebrate the good vibes of fair trade through free concerts and an opportunity to win a trip to Costa Rica, one of many locations where Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified™ coffee is grown.

Earlier this year, Potter and Franti visited fair trade farms in Colombia and Sumatra, where they saw firsthand how fair trade positively impacts the lives of farmers and their families.  By visiting the Green Mountain Facebook page, fans can see exclusive photos and videos from their trips, and even enter to win a trip of their own to Costa Rica. 

Exclusive Fair Trade Performances
To celebrate Fair Trade Month, both Potter and Franti will give exclusive performances streamed live on the Green Mountain Coffee® Facebook page.  Fans are invited to RSVP for the events at Facebook.com/GreenMountainCoffee and experience the good vibes firsthand:

·         Oct. 9 at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST — Grace Potter will perform live from famed music venue Joe’s Pub in New York City.  Potter’s set will feature unique acoustic versions of songs from her new album, The Lion The Beast The Beat.

·         Oct. 24 at 11 p.m. EST/8 p.m. PST — Michael Franti will rev up Los Angeles from the first-ever Great Coffee, Good Vibes Lounge, brought to you by Green Mountain Coffee.  Fans will be able to visit 7111 Melrose Avenue on October 24 and enjoy a free cup of Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified™ coffee.

    I love a great cup of coffee and am frustrated when I am eating out and the coffee tastes like dishwater. I learned that brewing a perfect cup depends on the type of bean you choose, the heat and quality of your water , the brewing method and equipment, the grind level, and how long the water is in contact with the grinds.
