About Organic Mt Elgon Gumutindo Roast & Ground Coffee FairTrade,
Medium roasted coffee with smooth balance, good acidity and sweet delicate lemony citrus notes.
Buying this coffee means you make a big impact by empowering farmers in isolated co-operatives to build more sustainable and secure livelihoods. Fair Trade premiums have helped build warehouses, co-op buildings, schools, and health clinics. Most importantly, though, it has empowered the farmers, including women members. Each primary co-op nominates two members to the GCCE Board, one of which must be a woman. The members of Gumutindo hope that the demand for fairly traded organic coffee will continue to grow, so that someday all of the 200,000 farmers on the mountain will become co-op members and will benefit from the co-op structure.
