We've been given the sweet gift of freedom in Level 2 to purchase and drink coffee to our hearts content, so Remix put together a guide to finding Fairtrade coffee with cafe and stop-in options, no matter where you are in the City of Sails.
It's more important right now than ever before to consciously consume, and that means buying Fairtrade where ever you can. While we're free to go back to our (mostly) normal lives, many coffee bean producers are still facing restrictions, challenges and big threats to their health due to Covid-19.
You can help support these vulnerable farmers and their families in developing countries as well as your local cafes, simply by buying Fairtrade coffee.

People all over the world rely on coffee to wake up and get them through the day, yet many of the 25 million coffee farmers depend on it for their livelihoods and a lot of them are struggling to survive.
Buying Fairtrade coffee will not only support the local kiwi owned and operated business by helping them to come back to life, but also these small-scale farmers and their families back where the beans themselves first come to life.
