If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you'll know that I'm something of a tree-hugger. And a coffee lover. And I try to be socially conscious. Yes, I'm one of "those" people. You can go ahead and call me a bleeding-heart liberal. I promise I won't cry. So when LaRissa spoke to the church about slavery in the world today, I was horrified to think that my coffee could be (and probably was) harvested by people who were not paid a living wage, or in fact, any wage at all. Yeah, I know. I probably should have thought of that. I said I try to be socially conscious, I didn't say I was perfect. Interestingly enough, Jonathan did not know any of this, as I quietly started buying Fair Trade coffee without saying anything. He, knowing my love for wanting to save the world in my own small way, sent me this link to a coffee cooperative last week. I jumped all over it, and we got our first shipment today!
I can't wait to try it out! :)
