CRS Fair Trade Coffee

Serve Coffee that Serves Others

The CRS Coffeelands program works with coffee farmers around the world to increase their standard of living by providing technical and financial assistance to help farmers improve farming, harvesting, and processing techniques so they can meet the demands of the market. In the United States, we work with Equal Exchange and 12 other fair trade coffee companies. Any time a Catholic makes a purchase from one of these partners, they make a donation back to our Fair Trade Fund, and we invest those funds right back into farmer cooperatives around the world.

We offer a wide range of resources to help your parish make the switch to ethically traded coffee, including guidance around budgeting, and we’re always available to lend a helping hand as well! Need some convincing? Check out these stories from the field:
