Peace Coffee, an organic, Fair Trade coffee is available again at Fair & Green. We've lowered our prices on coffee, as well.

We can customize orders of whole bean or ground coffee. 100's of Fair Trade teas are at our fingertips, and luscious cocoa to make a mocha. We also can offer Fair Trade chocolates (mini bars to large bars) at a discount for offices, weddings, and other events.

Wonder if you're eligable for discounts? Just ask! We're here to customize your Fair Trade needs.
