By drinking Jasper Fairtrade & Organic Certified Coffees, you are directly linked to coffee farmers around the world, creating a better deal for growers and their families. Choosing Fairtrade products rehumanises the food supply chain - it builds roads, teaches children, buys medical supplies, changes lives.
We are Australia’s Leading Fairtrade and Organic Coffee Roasters. As founding members of the Australian and New Zealand Fairtrade Association, we actively support the Fairtrade movement. We were the first roaster to offer organic coffee in 1989 and have Australia's largest range.
Not only are these coffees ethically and environmentally sound, but in line with our commitment to Quality in the Cup, they are some of the best coffees to cross our tasting bench.
What Is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is a commercial trading partnership which guarantees a Fair living wage and improved living conditions for producers in developing countries. Independently audited Fairtrade guarantees:
- That a Fair price is paid directly to the producer and there are fair labour conditions for all people working on plantations.
- That environmental standards are used which restrict the use of agrochemicals and foster sustainability.
- A portion of the price you pay for your coffee (the Fairtrade Premium) goes into a community trust fund to make a real impact such as education and health care.
Organic at Jasper Coffee
Certified Organic coffee means no inorganic chemicals or pesticides are used in producing the coffeee. The strict standards of the Australian Certified Organic system go further demanding no chemicals are used in the ENTIRE supply chain including roasting and handling here in Australia. This assures you there is no cross contamination with non-organic products. Our Roasting Plant is Australian Certified Organic.
What Is Shade Grown?
With habitat destruction ravaging equatorial rainforests, intelligent coffee producers are now planning for a sustainable future by planting coffee trees under an indigenous forest canopy cover. This provides natural habitat and food for local wildlife, as well as a vital haven for migratory birds.
These sustainable coffee crops encourage a bio-diverse environment and are often the sole source of cash income for the indigenous populations that produce them.
Jasper Coffee conciously chooses to increase the number of shade grown coffees that we offer. Look for our ‘tree symbol’ for Shade Grown coffees or see our full product list for the whole range.
