Higher Grounds Fair Trade Coffee Giveaway
What could be better than making your morning brighter? How about making the world brighter too? If you need a cup of joe befitting of starting your day with a smile, Higher Grounds Trading Company provides not only quality organic coffees for true coffee lovers, but they also provide a host of benefits for the farmers and communities responsible for the beans.
I’m learning that there’s nothing better than shade grown organic coffee. Higher Grounds receives their beans from small shady coffee plantations around the globe; each location is assured a fair wage. In return, the plantations produce amazing shade grown organic beans which are sent to Higher Grounds and roasted to order in small batches. My pound of Justice Blend arrived on my doorstep a mere two days after its roasting. What a difference this makes! The Justice Blend is a light roast that produces a full bodied coffee. Opening the bag for the first time was a delightful experience my nose will not soon forget. A blend of Colombian and Ethiopian beans, Justice Blend produced a marvelous cup of coffee that offered much more flavor than I had even expected. I was surprised to note the soft floral notes mentioned on the bag do indeed exist, making for a very enjoyable breakfast coffee. Full of flavor, roasted to order, and serving a good cause, Higher Grounds gives the serious coffee drinker something to crow about – even in the wee hours of morning.
