Philly Fair Trade Roasters specializes in small-batch organic 100% Arabica coffee, hand-roasted on a daily basis for maximum freshness. Our artisanal coffee can be found at select Philadelphia area cafes, premier restaurants, and farmers markets.
Our roastmaster, Joe Cesa, has been micro-roasting coffee in Philadelphia since 2002, previously as the proprietor of the first fair trade café in the city, Joe Coffee, at 11th and Walnut streets. We're now roasting in the Feltonville section of North Philly, original home of Philly's Goldenberg Peanut Chews.
bird-friendly, shade-grown, sustainable business practices live here!
Our coffee is sourced from fairtrade certifiedTM cooperatives in Honduras, Mexico, Ethiopia, Peru, Colombia, and elsewhere. We are committed to sustainable business practices: We produce less than 20 pounds a month in rubbish--recycling/composting/repurposing as much as possible! Even our packaging is in recyclable/compostable bags made with vegetable-based cello and recycled kraft paper--perfect for a fresh product to be consumed in a few weeks--not stored for months. We deliver to our whole accounts using plastic reusable tubs, cutting their trash as well.
We support our producers' organic and bird-friendly practices, ensuring that the farmers work in environmentally-healthy communities and paid more for their crop than they would receive from normal trade channels. The few selections we buy via direct trade are from totally transparent sources, assuring us the extra premiums paid are going directly to the producers--in their pockets, invested in their areas' infrastructure, and washing stations for coffee production. We're making a difference one cup at a time!
