Fair coffee trade

Fair Trade Coffee is a scam. Period. The crop is sustainable because new plants are always added. But the charade that Fair Trade helps farmers is a joke and people needs to stop propagating the lie. It’s a pyramid scheme where local exporters pay small farmers a pittance, like 15 cents a pound for coffee beans, and then sell the product to a bigger company which will labeled it “Fair Trade”. Add to that, the fact that companies are telling farmers when to pick the beans and consumers are left with a product that rivals saw dust.
