MEET OUR ROASTER
Our roastmaster, Joe Cesa, has been micro-roasting coffee in Philadelphia since 2002. The commitment to Fair Trade started then and was carried on to Philly Fair Trade Roasters in 2010, when he joined with partners to launch a Fair Trade coffee roasting company. Our roasting facility is in the Feltonville section of North Philly and from there we produce high-quality, roasted coffee.
Featured Coffee: Colombia – Kachalu
Fourteen cooperative family farms in the region produce this high-quality, socially responsible, shade-grown Arabica, in some cases with over 25 different tree species per hectare! The Kachalu farms are Organic Certified, Fair Trade Certified and part of the Rainforest Alliance, where farmers hold high standards regarding water usage, deforestation, soil erosion, wildlife, and other environmental concerns.
