A February Perfect Pairing!

Fill this Heart Mug from Craft Link (available at SERRV and Fair Trade Winds) with Equal Exchange's Love Buzz coffee, and you're halfway to a February perfect pairing!

We hope all of our lovely readers had a very happy Fair Trade Valentine’s Day!  Though, now that we’re past the excitement of the big day, we sure could use a perfect pairing pick-me-up.  If, like us, you are starting to feel the winter blues, try this yummy combo, which will have you celebrating the Fair Trade love despite this chilly weather.

Here’s what Theo has to say about this decadently divine treat:

“The best collaborations are simple. Theo sources and roasts the best chocolate. Caffé Vita sources and roasts the best coffee. why not combine them? coffee + chocolate = happiness.”

We couldn’t agree more.  Which is why we’ve paired these delicious coffee chocolate caramels with one of our favorite Fair Trade coffees.  Because coffee + chocolate + coffee = happiness³.  (We’ve checked this equation with Dave-the-Coffee-Guy, and he’s in absolute agreement.)


Dave’s not the only who’s head-over-heels for Equal Exchange’s Organic Love Buzz coffee.  None of the Fair Trade Trendsters can resist this “sweet, sultry and smooth coffee with an unexpected bite and lasting finish.”  Even Katy, Fair Trade Trends founder and notorious hazelnut syrup fiend, drinks this delicious, chocolately brew black.  Simply scrumptious.

So even though Punxsutawney Phil’s offered us hope for an early spring, if you still see snow on the ground (or hey, love chocolate, coffee, or helping to promote economic justice for the world’s farmers), we say treat yourself!  Because, you’ve earned it!  And because doing good tastes so right!

Stay Warm!

Peace and Love,

Your Fair Trade Trendsters
