« Life by chocolate: taste test #1 | Main | Watching Katrina's aftermath »



Thanks for the information...I bookmarked your site, and I appreciate your time and effort to make your blog a success!


Au contraire, Schiller, fair trade doesn't mean it tastes bad. :) Maybe your coffee was just a bad batch or brand that doesn't suit your tastebuds; I'm sure you could find some others that taste better! check out all of these FT coffees:
...and chocolates:

While I'm tasting some bitter dark, dark chocolates, you can get all kinds of sweeter fair trade flavors. Fair trade just means that the growers and makers aren't ripped off.

As says:
"By receiving a fair price, Fair Trade producers can avoid cost-cutting practices that sacrifice quality. The Fair Trade producers' traditional artisanal farming methods result in exceptional products."


If "fair trade" chocolate is like "fair trade" coffee, it must be ghastly. I grind my own beans because I want a fresh brew, so I got some fair trade coffee and did me up a batch. Gack! Tasted like that percolator coffee that's been sitting in the pot since the end of yesterday's third shift at the rubber tire plant!

I'm a big fan of the Sweet Earth Organic Chocolate Peanut Crunch Bar. And darling -- If you and your lover lived down here in SoCal, I'm sure you'd heart my Valentines Day party. But as it is, hope the two of you celebrate in grand fair trade style up there :)
