Puro Fair Trade Coffee Review

Puro Fair Trade Coffee Review

Coffee soothes my soul and warms my heart. But not just any coffee. I love coffee that is rich and full of flavor with no bitter tones.

So I was very excited to sample and review Puro Coffee. I was impressed by their philosophy and dedication to the environment and organic coffee beans.

I received a lovely package with three different blends of coffee including a rustic hessian bag. The package also included an adorable cup and saucer and handwritten labels were attached to each blend describing the coffee in detail.

In 2005, Miko, a Belgian company which has been roasting coffee for over two centuries, created Puro Fair-trade Coffee. Miko is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint. They installed solar panels on the roof of their Belgian distribution building and during the winter months, heat their offices by utilizing the heat generated from an air compressor to save more than 20,000 L of gasoline a year. Impressive!

The Fair-trade Foundation has set the standard to help lift working conditions and improve the lives of millions of people that work in coffee-growing dependent communities in the developing world. Puro Coffee pays fair prices for all coffee beans and its organic certification helps ensure their coffee is grown in the way nature intended. No artificial fertilizers or chemical agents are ever used. The coffee is not only fair-trade, but shade grown. Shade grown coffee encourages the preservation or re-planting of native trees to provide this essential shade. This is great for biodiversity and helps keep coffee- growing in harmony with the environment.
