CRS Fair Trade Coffee

Serve Coffee that Serves Others

CRS provides direct assistance to coffee farmers overseas and supports them by promoting fair trade here in the United States. We also provide technical and financial assistance to help farmers improve farming, harvesting, and processing techniques so they can meet the demands of the market. We do this through the CRS Fair Trade Network – more than a dozen coffee partners who ensure their product agreements with disadvantaged farmers and workers uphold the standards of fair trade. Any time a Catholic makes a purchase from one of these partners, they make a donation back to our Fair Trade Fund, and the cycle continues.

We offer a wide range of resources to help your parish make the switch to fair trade, 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:

Where To Buy

While all of our coffee partners are able to ship across the US, we encourage you to care for God’s creation and cut down on your carbon footprint by ordering from the coffee partner closest to you.  Please use the map below or the menu to the right to browse for the closest dose of java! Each company is unique and has much to offer – from fundraising to personalized coffee bags to wholesale terms for Catholics, these folks offer a wide range of services to supporters of CRS.
