What is direct Fair Trade?
Level Ground Trading uses direct Fair Trade to source their ingredients. This means, that they import their products directly and travel to the countries where they’re grown. They connect with small-scale farmers face-to-face and establish long-term relationships. In their company history, they have consistently given more money back to farmers than regular Fair Trade companies. For every dollar paid for coffee and tea, Level Ground Trading gives $0.69 directly back to the farmer compared to $0.48 that a regular Fair Trade company gives back.
How to store your coffee
Once opened, store your coffee in an airtight, opaque container and put it in a cooler spot in your house. Exposure to air, light, and heat will mean that your coffee loses its aroma more quickly. Do not freeze your coffee or store it in the fridge. The moisture in the fridge or freezer will make your coffee bland and tasteless in no time!
