This just in,, for you lovers of imported coffees:

www.foodnews.ca


Editor's Note: In 2005, Starbucks had $6.4 billion dollars in sales
yet coffee is selling today for about 40% of what it was 10 years
ago and producers are having a hard time of it. Fair trade
certification cuts out middlemen and pays higher prices per pound
than non-fair trade exchange, but this is still a relatively small
amount. At least two other factors help to explain the poor
situation of coffee producers. One is over supply - a state of
affairs to which the World Bank and other major development
institutions have contributed. They have done so by advising
previously non-coffee producing countries to grow the product for
export earnings. Second, tariffs and details in trade agreements
make it difficult for producing countries themselves to process and
roast beans for export. That is, to engage in value-added activities.

The article below on fair trade coffee in Ethiopia is followed by
summaries and links to the websites of two new documentaries on the
subject.

(see the link above to the rest of the stories...)

if you wanna know what a real cafe looks and tastes like, go get to ANY Bar in France, Spain or Italy.
They serve it in nice porcelain cups, if you didn't know.
Starbucks is actually doing really well in Paris.
