We have been selling organically grown and fairly traded beans all along, but just this month we became officially certified. This means that our packaging can feature the certified stickers. We did not have to change our methodology, but we did have to fill out a good amount of paperwork and pay some fees. We did it because we believe in the integrity of the certification and the certified label, and are glad that there are third party certifiers to help hold companies accountable to their claims. Thank you for supporting us and buying fairly traded and sustainably grown coffee beans!
