roasted is an active supporter of the Fairtrade Foundation.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms on trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Fairtrade challenges the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the weakest and poorest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have greater control of their lives.

We have a comprehensive range of Fairtrade blends, some of which we have matched to our regular ones with the help of our coffee manager, Stuart, who is one of the European judges for the world barista championships. He looks at the origins of our blends and recreates the flavour profile, evaluating such things as brightness, sweetness, body and complexity.
