Fair Trade Coffee

Fair Trade guarantees a set price to coffee growers...

Cornell Dining provides Fair Trade Coffee in all cafes and retail locations. Fair Trade Coffee guarantees a set price to coffee growers that makes them less vulnerable to exploitation and helps to assure a higher quality of life in their communities. Through fair trade, farmer’s are less vulnerable to market fluctuations, and are able to implement more sustainable farming practices.

Cornell’s fair trade coffee is provided by Ithaca Coffee Company, a local community business, as well as Seattle’s Best.

All of our fair trade coffee is served in reusable, stainless steel coffee mugs available in all Cornell cafes and dining facilities.
