San Cristobal Coffee - (Kirkland, WA) Our trusted partner for acquiring the very best Mexican coffee we've come across...and one of the most socially-conscious & transparently-run ships to boot. Theirs is a "life-project" which has thoroughly engaged and brought up the quality of life in the coffee growing community of Nayarit State in western Mexico. Yon roastmaster of Badbeard's spent nearly 9 years in that country and has always felt a special kinship to the hardworking compadres y comadres.

Tina's Restaurant - (760 Hwy 99W, Dundee, OR) Even if they weren't Badbeard's funnest customer, I'd recommend the Bergens (David & Tina) and their remarkable staff as the foodie ombudspeople for the Willamette Valley, gateway to the Oregon wine industry. Impeccable food and vino always, offering the best bounty of the local food producers. Next time you're traveling through and awaiting the molasses-like change of the famous Dundee traffic light, pull your car into their establishment and eat and relax.

World Fair Trade Organization Fundamentally, the World Fair Trade Organization is a global community of pioneering and passionate change-makers, responsible for the development of the sustainable Fair Trade economy, for the good of us all. Fair trade coffee, or equal exchange coffee, is coffee that is traded by bypassing the coffee trader and therefore giving the producer (and buyer) higher profits. While fair trade certified coffee does not necessarily mean that the extra money trickles down to coffee farmers, it is better than most alternatives.
